oke i want a sound file to start playing 20 seconds after the page has loaded.. is that possible? or do i have to alter the sound file.. because that could be a hard option.

Well, starting muzik without permission is really a bad idea...It makes people leave immediately unless that's the point.

I would guess it involves a timeout onload function which would be found in the javascript forum. :rolleyes:

Code this into the html page, within the head tag -
<script language="JavaScript">
var howManySeconds = 10
function pause() {
myTimer=setTimeout("whatToDo()",howManySeconds*1000)
}

function whatToDo() {
//-- This example just pops a message up on the screen.
//-- But you can write your own code inside this whatToDo()
//-- function to play music.
alert ("This is when the music would start to play when you have coded it of course!")
}
//--></script>

In the body tag do this, <body onload="pause()">

I have an animated gif that has some stars starting as dots and expanding into 70 x 70 stars.

I'd like a very short "popping" sound file to play as each one finishes.

Any ideas? Besides don't do it!

Thanx

Probably a few ways to do this...One would be to make a flash movie with the sound accompanying the graphic. :D

Flash movie:

animation1
sound
animation2
sound
animation3
sound
etc.

skippy,
you could just make a function that plays your sound file and at the end of the function that does the stars call it.
