Building an ACP 3D HTML Table Image Gallery

In this article I show you how the technology of Active Client Pages can be used to speed up the operation of a 3D HTML table image gallery. This technique is especially useful when visitors reach your site through a slow Internet connection. This is the first part of a two-part series.

Building an ACP 3D HTML Table Image Gallery
(Page 1 of 4 )

I've written two articles that are relevant to what we will cover here: Building a 3D HTML Table and Building an Image Gallery in a 3D HTML Table. You'll find it helpful to read these two articles in the order I mentioned them before you read this one.

You need basic knowledge of JavaScript and HTML to understand this two-part series.

Active Client Pages

I am one of the innovators of Active Client Pages. I define Active Client Pages as the production of HTML pages at the client computer by the browser using web technology.

The secret of Active Client Pages lies in the fact that after the first page has been downloaded by the browser, other pages or data are downloaded in advance in the background, without the user knowing, and stored in an HTML master page (or frameset). This master page (or frameset) is the first page downloaded.

By the time the user has finished reading or otherwise dealing with the first page, the information for the next few pages has arrived at the browser. When the user needs the next page, the browser displays it from the store (master page).

This secret applies to images: after downloading the first set of images, download the rest of the images in advance before the user needs them.

Active Server Pages is abbreviated ACP.

Tutorial Order

I have given you the objective of this two-part series. I have explained what Active Client Pages are and given you a basic summary of how they work. I will go on to give you a summary of my principles of 3D HTML tables. Next, I will give you a summary of a simple project of an image gallery in a 3D table. Finally, I will explain how ACP makes the gallery operate quickly.
