View Full Version : Using PHP with javascript slideshow

I'm trying to set up a Javascript slideshow but with images that are pulled from a mYSQL database using PHP.

For example:



if (!empty($row['pic1']))
{
echo '<td><a href="images/carpictures/' . $title16 . '"><img src="images/carpictures/' . $title16 . '" width="140" height="93"></a></td>';
}


- and so on, with a statement testing to see if an image exists in that field. If it does, it gets added to the page with all the images displayed as thumbnails.

What I want is to have the images bring up their larger version when hovered over, and launch a slideshow with an autoplay feature as well as the usual back / next / play / stop controls etc.

However all the slideshows I've seen (Javascript based) have the image names assigned manually to individual variables in the page header.

The problem being that my images are being generated by the PHP call to the database.

Anyone know how I can get a Javascript slideshow working within this context- or know of one which actually does work with PHP?

(I was using Lightbox, which is great, except that the client doesn't like it so I can't use it...)

PHP can output Javascript. Can you post a link to the Javascript slide show you are thinking of using?


if (!empty($row['pic1']))
{
// html and javascript
}
