"Creating Slide Presentations"
It would be PERFECT.. if I was on a cf server 9! *(&^%&$^%#&^^( My hosting company isn't running 9 in a shared environment yet.
Is there a way to make this work in cf8? aside from cfpresentation? That stinks.. it would have worked perfectly! So now I'm forced to make controls? A cfscript maybe with a timer and fade effect? would that work? then how would I write it?
ok.. bear with me.. I'm trying to wrap my head around this little app you linked too..
I want to get this to read from a database.... so I would write my query, and leave it open to put all the records into this field like so....
<cfquery NAME="slideShow" datasource="#APPLICATION.dataSource#">
SELECT ID, mainImage, content
ORDER BY ID
<td><img src="#mainImage#" width="200" height="200" /></td>
Then let the rest be run by the jquery code?
As Bob suggested, the jQuery Cycle plugin works well for this (I've done some pretty cool slideshows using the cycle plugin over the past couple years) http://jquery.malsup.com/cycle/.
Personally I prefer the jQuery Tools Scrollable plugin (with autoscroll plugin) http://flowplayer.org/tools/scrollable/autoscroll.html.
