I have a JavaScript function that is used to create a simple slideshow on my webpage. In IE, it has a nice fade in effect between slides. How can I make the effect work for other browsers like Firefox/Safari/Chrome/etc ?

Hi,

If you use the jquery fadein() function it will be compatible with most browsers, but if you did decide to reconfigure your code you would need to re-factor it to work with each browser, you will need to supply the code so we could take a look

Can you share that method, so that we can suggest the changes?

Sorry, I posted in haste this morning and forgot to put the function! Here is what I am using: (Disclaimer: I am a beginer, and this is cobbled together from things I found via google)

function runSlideShow(){
   if (document.all){
      document.images.SlideShow.style.filter="blendTrans(duration=2)"
      document.images.SlideShow.style.filter="blendTrans(duration=crossFadeDuration)"
      document.images.SlideShow.filters.blendTrans.Apply()      
   }
   document.images.SlideShow.src = preLoad[j].src
   if (document.all){
      document.images.SlideShow.filters.blendTrans.Play()
   }
   j = j + 1
   if (j > (p-1)) j=0
   t = setTimeout('runSlideShow()', slideShowSpeed)
}

<<document.images.SlideShow.style.filter>>
Assuming that SlideShow is the value of name attribute of the img tag, i don't think it works on all browsers.
Also you are checking for the document.all, which is not supported on all browsers.

would encourage you to use document.getElementById()

Similarly, filter is also not supported on all browser, infact to my knowledge, it is only supported on IE

I would encourage you to use jquery only (like fellow experts), since it takes care of all these problems and give you an same interface to make things work the same way on all browsers.
