I have found a third party code to a javascript fade in slideshow that I need to use but the only issue with it is that I need to display text dynamically along with the image fading in and out. I have attached the code below and also provided the link to the online location. Any help will be appreciated.

var fadeimages=new Array() //1st array set example. Remove or add more sets as needed.
//SET IMAGE PATHS. Extend or contract array as needed

fadeimages[1]=["/images/f_njpac_broadwayclosetohome.jpg", "/featuredevents", ""]

you need to hack the current to code

fadeimages[0]=["/images/f_njpac_soc.gif", "/featuredevents", "","TEXT GOES HERE"]

and get this last values some way in a div

The working version can be found at the following url http://insidetoday.com/newhome.php. I am not very strong at javascript so I am not sure on how to use html text code as part of the array. Is it possible for you to modify the code and show me how. The code does not need to work on IE6. Thanks in advance

Thank you very much, I do have one question can we add html tags and css inline styling to the text we are adding to the array or will it break the array. Once again thank you very much for your help.

LordofPorts I am trying to make the slideshopw content dynamic from the database and this is what I have at the moment but it does not work. Let me know if this is the right way to do this or how exactly should I do it.


var fadeimages=new Array() //1st array set example. Remove or add more sets as needed.
'<?PHP
$sql = "SELECT * FROM featuredevents ORDER BY title ASC LIMIT 0,10";
$result = mysql_query($sql);
$count = 0;
while($event = mysql_fetch_assoc($result)) {
echo "fadeimages[" . $count . "]=['<? echo $events[img]; ?>','/featuredevents_detail.php?fid=<? echo $events[fid]; ?>','','<? echo stripslashes($event[description]); ?>'];
    $count++;
}
?>'
 
var fadebgcolor="white"
