View Full Version : Images not showing up

01-20-2006, 04:18 PM
I'm not a master a building websites, but I built my own html site. I'm using javascript for my portfolio. On the left are small buttons and when you click one the buttons the larger image doesn't show up on the right. It works in Safari on my Mac, which is what it was built on, but it doesn't work in IE on Windows. Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong? Or what other code to use to accomplish the same idea (button on left and image load on the right). Here's the link:


Thanks for the help.

The script you are using to change the STAGE image is good


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


<script language="JavaScript" type="text/JavaScript">
function MM_preloadImages() { //v3.0
var d=document; if(d.images){ if(!d.MM_p) d.MM_p=new Array();
var i,j=d.MM_p.length,a=MM_preloadImages.arguments; for(i=0; i<a.length; i++)
if (a[i].indexOf("#")!=0){ d.MM_p[j]=new Image; d.MM_p[j++].src=a[i];}}

function MM_swapImgRestore() { //v3.0
var i,x,a=document.MM_sr; for(i=0;a&&i<a.length&&(x=a[i])&&x.oSrc;i++) x.src=x.oSrc;

function MM_findObj(n, d) { //v4.01
var p,i,x; if(!d) d=document; if((p=n.indexOf("?"))>0&&parent.frames.length) {
d=parent.frames[n.substring(p+1)].document; n=n.substring(0,p);}
if(!(x=d[n])&&d.all) x=d.all[n]; for (i=0;!x&&i<d.forms.length;i++) x=d.forms[i][n];
for(i=0;!x&&d.layers&&i<d.layers.length;i++) x=MM_findObj(n,d.layers[i].document);
if(!x && d.getElementById) x=d.getElementById(n); return x;

function MM_swapImage() { //v3.0
var i,j=0,x,a=MM_swapImage.arguments; document.MM_sr=new Array; for(i=0;i<(a.length-2);i+=3)
if ((x=MM_findObj(a[i]))!=null){document.MM_sr[j++]=x; if(!x.oSrc) x.oSrc=x.src; x.src=a[i+2];}

<a href="javascript:;" onClick="MM_swapImage('STAGE','','http://www.vicsjavascripts.org.uk/StdImages/One.gif',0)">

also changed one link on your code with my images and it worked OK
suggest you check your image names and paths

but you have a mess of errors on page with FireFox debugger

Thanks for testing it for me. It's strange. It works great in Explorer and Safari on my Mac, but when I use the PC to view it in Explorer the images take extemely long to show up.
