I am helping a friend make a site using FrontPage 2002. He wants to have on his home page at the top 3 slideshows next to each other and changing at same time automatically. I am not familiar with javascript but (with the help of some of the wonderful tutorials on line) figured out how to do 1 slideshow.

When I try to understand doing multiple (3 in my case) slideshows, I (quite frankly) get lost. I am reading a javascript book now but I really want to help my friend out this week.

Any help would be greatly appreciated with how I can actually code it with javascript OR perhaps telling me of a ready-made application I can buy. Note it has to do multiple slideshows, not just one.

Thank you. Again I appreciate your time and help.

Fred

Thank you for your suggestion. I appreciate your response.

But I need 3 side-by-side images at the same time showing and then changing at same time. There would be 3 changes (or 9 total).

I can't seem to be able to do this. I can do a single slideshow (with 3 auto-images in the single slideshow) but not multiple slideshows side-by-side.

Does anyone else have any suggestions please?

Thank you all.

Fred

Thank you for your offer. I appreciate it. Here is the code that I found does work for the single slideshow. I need to have 3 slideshows (side-by-side) that automatically change at same time. Each slideshow will have 3 images. Again thank you.

Dear Suneetha Reddy - First, thank you for all your time and efforts and help.

Ok, I tried the code you kindly suggested and worked out. I get 3 error messages:

style.MozOpacity is null or not an object.

itempobj.filters is null or not an object.

'degree' is null or not an object.

I am not sure what to do at this point. Take care, Fred
