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.

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

can you show a working version of the slideshow?
I cannot get the one you linked to to work in FF3 or IE6

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

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

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"
