      Guidelines and Netiquette   03/28/2017

      Posting Problems:   Having problems posting your topic? Read through this: To join, you agree to our terms and conditions and fill out and submit a registration form. An activation email will be sent to your email adress, so you'll need to verify your account. After that the account has to be validated by one of the moderators. This will mean that it can take up to a day to be activated. A couple of things to remember to ensure approval: Don't use an email address in one of those $2 four character .com domains eg. xyds.com. These will be deleted and the domain added to the banned list. Don't use an email address that is within a domain with a bad reputation for spam. A Google search is run on every email address and email domain. Don't sign up with an email address that doesn't exist, doesn't work or requires the sender to answer a quiz before their email can get to you. Put your country and or state and city in the signup form. Blank forms will go to the botton of the "to do" list. And make sure that your email address and your country match, saying you're from Alabama and using a .ru email address is not going to get you activated. After a membership is activated the first few posts will be monitored. Posting spam or unapproved topics described in the agreement results in an immediate ban. The email provider and the IP addresses associated with the account will be banned and all posts will be deleted. These strict measures have been deemed necessary to hinder spam. Sorry for any inconvenience this causes, but it's not liable to change. If, after reading this, you still can't post and don't understand why, contact one of the Moderators listed here.   Topic Guidelines   Including the following information can expedite an accurate response from board members: Must be a Specific Problem or Question related to web design and development Include Code in Question (wrap with   for small blocks of code and for longer blocks   ) Include Code Author Include Extra Notes/Modifications/Attempts Include web link to page/file when possible Content Guidelines   You may not post, upload, link to, or email any Content that contains, promotes, gives instruction about, or provides prohibited Content.

There's no need for calling someone stupid if they ask an 'easy' question. Keep your avatars and signatures absolutely child friendly. We have a younger audience on this forum. Keep your language appropriate for the same reason above. Do not PM moderators for help on the forum. Post on the topic, or create a new one.   Spam:   Recently, as you have all without doubt noticed, we have had lots of spam and advertisement on the forum. Therefore, we'd like to alert you as to what to do when you have found any of the aforementioned annoying messages: it. Immediately. Give a clear reason, please, if the advertising is not evident. DO NOT POST! Report, let the post stay as is, and we will get to it, meanwhile if you continue to post as normal in the other threads, it won't be on the top so long. Refrain from PMing the member. This won't help at all, as they are most likely spambots anyway. Thank you.       Images in signatures:   After thinking of users on dial-up, we have decided to enforce the following rules regarding signatures. Please pay heed to them. Respecting these rules is respecting the members on this forum with dial-up. Signature rules: No animated images AT ALL. No matter the amount of animation. Maximum image widthxheight: 300x150 Maximum image (file) size: 15kb Use calm colors. Do not use highly contrasting images in your signature, as this can get really annoying when seeing several posts from one member in the same thread. The same prohibited content goes for images as for posts. Lastly, use common sense. No lengthy signatures please. Save us some scrolling. Thank you.       Links in signatures:   Please understand that w3schools.com only exists because of voluntary work and is barely supported by the advertising littered throughout the tutorials and the forum. So, please, stop advertising other sites. DO not post links that drive traffic away from the w3schools domain - especially to a site that offers similar if not identical information. Please help support the site by keeping individuals on it. Thank you. Here are some guidelines as to what you can put in your signature: w3schools links --> allowed w3.org links --> allowed browser links --> allowed html editor links --> allowed personal sites --> allowed tutorial sites competing with w3schools --> NOT allowed sites completely irrelevant to webprogramming and this forum --> NOT allowed   Thanks for understanding, and for taking the time to read this. ~W3Schools Modstaff~

slide show

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I try to make a slide show with information that I found on the W3school site (http://www.w3schools.com/w3css/w3css_slideshow.asp).

But it doesn't function. Could anyone tell me why?

 

I have this in the head between the style tags:

 

var slideIndex = 0;
carousel();

function carousel() {
var i;
var x = document.getElementsByClassName("mySlides");
for (i = 0; i < x.length; i++) {
x.style.display = "none";
}
slideIndex++;
if (slideIndex > x.length) {slideIndex = 1}
x[slideIndex-1].style.display = "block";
setTimeout(carousel, 2000);
}

 

And then I have this in the body:

 

<img class="mySlides" src="images/index.jpg">
<img class="mySlides" src="images/indexfoto.jpg">


<a class="w3-btn-floating" onclick="plusDivs(-1)">❮</a>
<a class="w3-btn-floating" onclick="plusDivs(+1)">❯</a>

 

Thank you for trying to help me!

 

Andreas

This is the problem

 

carousel();

 

This calls the function to start the carousel slideshow, but because Its placed above the elements, it references the elements BEFORE they have been even rendered or exist as it is read from top to bottom.

 

Fix:

Option 1

Place below images, usually at very bottom of page before </body> as

 

<script>

carousel();

</script>

 

Option2

 

call the function AFTER page fully rendered

 

At its current position, change to

 

window.onload = carousel;

Thank you very much! It works now.

 

But I wonder one thing, I have now 7 temporary pictures that are all quite small. Later I will probably also use larger pictures. Could it be possible to progam a max size, or the same size for all pictures?

 

thank you

If they are proportionately the same, using width: 100%; height:auto; will make them fill the container width available to them with height adjusting proportionally. To allow for landscape or landscape images it becomes a little bit more complicated.

They already had a class? and i don't see any css styling related to these images classes? just apply my suggestion to current class of images.

STILL can't see ANY styling to do with the images, you don't have to know ANYTHING about classes for JavaScript in this situation, my suggestion is ALL css related, I would never unnecessary add styling through JavaScript, when it can just be added using css using classes already there to do that very job.

Thank you. I have added a height in css code to the already existing class, and it works now. All the pictures, small and large, have now the same height, which is ok for me.

 

But I have another question:

 

Is it possible to have on one page two slide shows running at the same time? I have tried it with a div tag around each list of pictures, and do have two slide shows then, but the second starts running after the first has stopped.

Unfortunately that slideshow is not set up to do that, it loops through each image with class 'mySlides' where ever it maybe, and therefore placing in different div elements won't make a difference. IT will require rewrite of code to achieve that.

Hmm... i will take a look at this when i get home, but like dsonesuk says... you only define 1 class to all of them, that is how i understand this anyhow :P...

i will take a look at the code when i get home. Possible for you to share the code? The whole website code from the "information.html" file? Just hit "ctrl + c" and "ctrl + v" on a Windows machine to copy and paste the whole code into code-tags so we actually can see what is going on ^^

Seeing the code on website and on here is 2 different things, depending on how you have coded the website :P

 

Will take a look if you share the code :)

Are you checking for error messages in your browser? They will be in the browser's developer console.

I imagine you are using the styling to hide slideshow images, without this all image will appear at once, until clicking of thumbnail causes code to hide all but selected.

IF you just copied and pasted the code, then changes images maybe its taken time to load w3.css styling from w3schools website completely, before taken effect.

 

It would help if you supplied code, or link, it would save time in this boring game of guessing all the time.
