Hello Experts,

I have a limitted javascript knowledge, but applying what i know and using my VBScript expirience, i've built a javascript slideshow with DIVs at https://www.mylocaladvantage.com/home.asp where if your mouse is not hovered within the recxtengal, the deal changes every 5 seconds.

My question is, when you click on a orange rectange at the bottom in order to skip to a specific deal, it takes a while.  How can I make it jump immidiately?

My assumption is that whn the orange rectangle is clicked, that event is queued, but does not execute until the timer stops and function ends.  If i'm correct, then how can i stop all process?  

Thanks.

It looks like that you need to replace your links like this:
<a class="opacityit" href="javascript:secs=0;StopTheClock();InitializeTimer(1);">
  <img id="NO1" src="images/numbered_boxes.jpg" width="65" height="28" style.filter="alpha(opacity=100)" style="">
</a>

Open in new window


to the ones that would look like:
<a class="opacityit" href="javascript:(function() { secs = 0; slideNo = 1; StartTheTimer(); })();">
  <img id="NO1" src="images/numbered_boxes.jpg" width="65" height="28" style.filter="alpha(opacity=100)" style="">
</a>

Open in new window


Please not the "javascript:..." part changed.
Do this for all 10 links that should change the slide and maybe that'll help. It worked in Opera, not sure about the other browsers.
