View Full Version : Triple picture swap

03-13-2009, 04:51 AM
I am trying to set up a simple script so that when the button is clicked the picture and the text box contents move to the right one spot. Then the for most right one will restart on the left (loop)

Heres the code I have so far

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">

function swapContentsOfTwoPictures(){





<table align="center" cellspacing="2" cellpadding="2" border="2">
<td><img name="A" src="1.jpg" > </td>
<td><img name="B" src="2.jpg" > </td>
<td><img name="C" src="3.jpg" > </td>
<td colspan="3"><p align="center" <input type="button" value="not as assigned"

onclick="swapContentsOfTwoPictures()" ></p></td>
<td><input name="AA" value="one"></td>
<td><input name="BB" value="two"></td>
<td><input name="CC" value="three"></td>

Hmmm, well... the way you've done it... certainly may seem simple, but I personally prefer to be able to keep track of images, rather than just assigning. Now, the following will work with any amount of images (not just 3), and should pretty much achieve the carousel effect(only in one direction, considering there's only one function at the moment, but it shouldn't take too long to add a secondary for moving in the other direction):

<script type="text/javascript">
minimg = 1;
currimg = 2;
maximg = 3;
extension = ".jpeg"

function movefwd(){
if (currimg == minimg)
currimg = maximg;
if (currimg == minimg)
var fstpic = maximg + extension;
var fstpic = (currimg - 1) + extension;
A.src = fstpic;
B.src = currimg + extension;
if (currimg == maximg)
lstpic = minimg + extension;
lstpic = (currimg + 1) + extension;
C.src = lstpic;

function movebck() {

And just call the function movefwd on a desired button. Enjoy.

Circular left to right, scrolling images, with caption. Sample images, attached:
