Create Your Own DHTML Slideshow With a Fading Effect
(Page 1 of 5 )

I have seen many slideshow scripts almost all support version 3 browsers but require equal sized photos. My script does not require equal sized photos at all, in addition it also adds a fading effect.

Clipping is a powerful CSS property. It tells the browser what area of the visual element should be displayed. You can produce amazing dynamic fade effects by changing the clipping value of objects, which is what I will teach you to do (using DHTML) in this article.

  • The fading effect does not work in Opera, Konqueror and Omniweb, because these browsers do not support clipping
  • Older browsers show the pictures side by side
  • Internet Explorer 5 on Mac doesn't support fading if you use a doctype such as <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/1999/REC-html401-19991224/loose.dtd">
  • Mozilla doesn't support fading if you use XHTML or HTML 4 strict
