Rotate linked banners with a fade

Posted on 2009-05-19

Last Modified: 2013-12-25
I have 5 banners with links to within my site that I want to rotate on my home page. I would also like to have these banners transition with a fade if possible.

I've been able to locate code that takes care of the rotation piece but it only works in IE (see below).

Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

<ilayer id="l1">

var bannerArray = new Array();
var myCount=0;
// Banner Code Assignment
bannerArray[0] = "<A HREF=\"\"><IMG SRC=\"\" border=\"0\" width=\"468\" height=\"60\"></A>";
bannerArray[1] = "<A HREF=\"\"><IMG SRC=\"\" border=\"0\" width=\"468\" height=\"60\"></A>";
bannerArray[2] = "<A HREF=\"\"><IMG SRC=\"\" border=\"0\" width=\"468\" height=\"60\"></A>";
function bannerRotate() {
if(myCount > bannerArray.length-1){myCount=0;}
// Write out rotation
	if (document.all){			// it is IE
	else if (document.layers){	// it is NN;
setTimeout("bannerRotate()", 3000);
// -->

Hi wattanabi2,
Ok, i've amended the code for rotation that work for other browser like firefox. If you're looking for fade effect, that may only work in i.e version. Check this article:
....//existing code 
if (document.all){                      // it is IE
        else if (document.layers){      // it is NN
	else if (document.getElementById){
         //add this line...

Thanks x_com. While I'm still missing the fade piece, this gets me off to a good start. I'll take a look at the link and will try to work in the fade piece from there.
