Hi,
please review the javaScript codes below ...
Can someone please modify it so it works like this (I want to have a dynamic effect, just like as the page is loading results) :
- When the page loads, it displays contents of <!-- #1 <p> --> which is a loading gif image
- Next, after few seconds (I believe it can be adjusted from the script) it displays <!-- #2 <p> --> ... replacing the <!-- #1 <p> -->
- I hope it can works on all browsers too

Any solutions ?

Whoaa... so close, man ... the number #2.. .:)
But, I believe it's my fault that includes <a href= at the first time on my codes (actually I got it from one of your solution in EE).

Well, what I really want is the <!-- #1 <p> --> shows then after few seconds changes to <!-- #2 <p> --> .. "without have to click a link."
Please look at below codes where I delete the <a href= but still it needs to click the image ... :(

I believe you can modify it ... :)

PS: I try using "onLoad" instead of "onClick" but it's not working ... :(

Cool .... :)
but somehow I must combine your both codes into one (to suits on my page).

So, I have to split the points ... Thanks a ton for you both ... :)

By the way, below is my modification codes:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">

<html>

<head>

<title>Untitled</title>

<script type="text/javascript">

function change()

{

document.getElementById("Link1").innerHTML = "<a href='http://www.abc.com'>http://www.abc.com</a>";

}

</script>

</head>

 

<body>

 

<!-- #1 <p> -->

<p id="Link1"><img src="loading.gif" width="36" height="37" border="0" alt="Loading ..." onLoad="setTimeout('change()',2000);" /></p>

 

</body>
