Javascript clashing - trying to run two scripts on one page

Hello all,

I'm trying to incorporate two Jquery scripts in one XHTML page but they are clashing. I don't know anything about Jquery, having copyied the scripts from different sources. They work individually, just not together.

Is it possible to structure the attached code so that the scripts don't clash?

Many thanks,
Stuart
<script type="text/javascript" src="javascript/jquery.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="javascript/s3Slider.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
    $(document).ready(function() {
        $('#slider').s3Slider({
            timeOut: 3000
        });
        $('#slider1').s3Slider({
            timeOut: 4000 
        });
        $('#slider2').s3Slider({
            timeOut: 5000 
        });
        
    });
</script>
<script src="javascript/jquery-1.2.2.pack.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
 
<script type="text/javascript">
	$(function() {
		// set opacity to nill on page load
		$("ul#menu span").css("opacity","0");
		// on mouse over
		$("ul#menu span").hover(function () {
			// animate opacity to full
			$(this).stop().animate({
				opacity: 1
			}, "slow");
		},
		// on mouse out
		function () {
			// animate opacity to nill
			$(this).stop().animate({
				opacity: 0
			}, "slow");
		});
	});
</script>

bYou're using one library (jquery) probably two different versions.
Just use one and get the latest version (1.3.2).
Get it at http://jquery.com

The two functions will be triggered via jquery when the DOM is loaded.
You can combine them as well.

See code
<script type="text/javascript" src="javascript/jquery.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="javascript/s3Slider.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
    $(function() {
        $('#slider').s3Slider({
            timeOut: 3000
        });
        $('#slider1').s3Slider({
            timeOut: 4000 
        });
        $('#slider2').s3Slider({
            timeOut: 5000 
        });
        
        // set opacity to nill on page load
        $("ul#menu span").css("opacity","0");
        // on mouse over
        $("ul#menu span").hover(function () {
            // animate opacity to full
            $(this).stop().animate({
                opacity: 1
            }, "slow");
        },
        // on mouse out
        function () {
            // animate opacity to nill
            $(this).stop().animate({
                opacity: 0
            }, "slow");
        });
    });
</script>

Hi Albert,

Thanks for your response. I downloaded the latest jquery file and used your code but the scripts stil seem to clash (i.e the navigation menu animation doesn't work).

You can see the work in progress yourself at: http://bogrov.com/learnsync/clients.html. See the buttons working on the other pages.

Any ideas?

p.s. I found this on the subject: http://www.macpherson-neil.co.uk/ResourceWeb/WebDevelopment/Javascript/Multiscript_Tutorial2.htm - which seems to advise calling the events separately. I just don't know how to implement it.

Hey Stu

The problem is that you want to have 3 different sliders on 3 different elements. (on the divs with id slider, slider1 and slider2)
There is only the div with id slider.
Slider1 and slider2 do not exist in the html.

Just remove the statements.
<script type="text/javascript" src="javascript/jquery.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="javascript/s3Slider.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
    $(function() {
        $('#slider').s3Slider({
            timeOut: 3000
        });
        
        // set opacity to nill on page load
        $("ul#menu span").css("opacity","0");
        // on mouse over
        $("ul#menu span").hover(function () {
            // animate opacity to full
            $(this).stop().animate({
                opacity: 1
            }, "slow");
        },
        // on mouse out
        function () {
            // animate opacity to nill
            $(this).stop().animate({
                opacity: 0
            }, "slow");
        });
    });
</script>

Thanks Albert, you are my hero! Works perfectly.

I think it's about time I learn some Jquery. But in the meantime, thanks a bunch.

Cheers,
Stu
