    Scrolling Images


    Hey,

    I'm a new member. I wasn't sure if I should post this in Java or here. I know there is limited use of the marquee code but have read mostly that jQuery is the way to go. Basically I have several images. These images are going to be contained in a table and I want them to cycle through while giving the user the option to go back or forward. If anyone could point me in the right direction, I would be grateful.

    Thanks,
    Joshua

    jQuery is one of the most popular methods. One that I've used a lot that works well is the Nivo Slider. Search for a few things like that and you'll find what you're looking for.

    Welcome to DevShed Forums, JMcAuley.

    There are a lot of jQuery plugins that do that kind of thing. Here are some of them.

    P.S. Why are your images "going to be contained in a table"?

    JQuery is the answer to your question. JQuery is also supported by all browsers and keeps the site light because the images are called in rather than inserted within the document itself

    Assuming that's always true for the sake of discussion, how does that keep the site light? The images still have to be loaded at some point, don't they?
