How to display all images in a folder?

Hello,

I'm using the attached code snippet to display all the images in a folder.

The problem is with this line:
<img src='../thumbphp/phpThumb.php?src=/travel_pics/$file/'.*.*.'&w=100' alt=''/>

I can't get the *.* to work - what am i doing wrong?


Cheers
<?php
if ($handle = opendir('travel_pics/'.$id.'/')) {
while (false !== ($file = readdir($handle))) {
if ($file != "." && $file != "..") {
echo "
<a id='thumb1' href='../public_html/travel_pics/$file/' onclick='return hs.expand(this)' class='highslide'>
<img src='../thumbphp/phpThumb.php?src=/travel_pics/$file/'.*.*.'&w=100' alt=''/>
</a>
";
}
}
closedir($handle);
}
?>

i dont know why you require *.*

just if it was supposed to be there then it should be

<img src='../thumbphp/phpThumb.php?src=/travel_pics/$file/.*.*.&w=100' alt=''/>

i think this should work

echo "
<a id='thumb1' href='/travel_pics/$id/$file/' onclick='return hs.expand(this)' class='highslide'>
<img src='../thumbphp/phpThumb.php?src=/travel_pics/$id/$file/&w=100' alt=''/>
</a>
";

I'm trying to get it to load all images from each folder....but as you can see it hasn't worked:

www.globxposure.net/index.php

Ultimately the purpose of this exercise is that when you click on an image (click on the Norwich marker), you get the option to view Next/Previous image - and i would like it to cycle through the images that are in the same folder as the image the user has just selected.

Hope you understand me.

This was a badly worded question on my part, however, another expert has helped me out so i no longer need to keep this open.
