I have a jQuery example that I am trying and it's not quite right. The images are automatically going to the next one, but when the next image is fading in, it pushes the previous image down instead of them fading in/out on top of each other.

'*** CODE ****
<%@ Page Language="VB" AutoEventWireup="false" CodeFile="JQuerySlideShow2.aspx.vb" Inherits="test_JQuerySlideShow2" %>

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head runat="server">
    <title>Untitled Page</title>

  <style type="text/javascript">
    #slideshow {
                margin: 80px auto;
                position: relative;
                width: 240px;
                height: 240px;
                padding: 10px;
                box-shadow: 0 0 20px rgba(0,0,0,0.4);
            }
            
            #slideshow > div {
                position: absolute;
                top: 10px;
                left: 10px;
                right: 10px;
                bottom: 10px;
            }
  </style>
 
  <script src="../scripts/jquery-1.8.3.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

  <script type="text/javascript">
            $(document).ready(function() {
            
                  $("#slideshow > div:gt(0)").hide();
      
                  setInterval(function() {
                    $('#slideshow > div:first')
                      .fadeOut(1000)
                      .next()
                      .fadeIn(1000)
                      .end()
                      .appendTo('#slideshow');
                  },  3000);
                  
            });
  </script>
 
</head>

<body>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
   
    <div id="slideshow">
      <div>
        <img src="img/img_slide_01.jpg" />
      </div>
     
      <div>
        <img src="img/img_slide_02.jpg" />
      </div>

      <div>
        Pretty cool eh; This slide is proof the content can change.
      </div>
    </div>
   
    </form>
</body>
</html>

The problem is with this line:
<style type="text/javascript">

Open in new window

It should be:
<style type="text/css">

Open in new window

That typo causes your CSS not to work properly and that causes the jump.

That's awesome! I thought it was something silly like that. Thanks a million. You're talking about the first occurrence of that.
