Topic: javascript in gallery.xml

Hi,

I am no expert at this stuff and my idea may be totally off the mark, but I'll ask anyway.


I would like to use the following script for pictures displayed in simleviewer:
---------------------------------------------------------------
<script type="text/javascript">

if (document.images)
{
    image1 = new Image;
    image2 = new Image;
    image1.src = "images/picture1.jpg";
    image2.src = "images/picture2.jpg";
}

function chgImg(name, image)
{
    if (document.images)
    {
        document[name].src = eval(image+".src");
    }
}

</script>
---------------------------------------------------------------

code:
---------------------------------------------------------------
<img src="images/picture1.jpg" width="402" height="600" alt="" title="" border="0" align="middle" name="pic1" onmouseover='chgImg("pic1", "image2")' onmouseout='chgImg("pic1", "image1")'>
---------------------------------------------------------------


Can that script be used in the gallery.xml like inside the following:
---------------------------------------------------------------
<simpleviewergallery

    title="Pictures"
    frameWidth="0"
whatever, whatever...
    embedHeight="84%"
    stageVAlign="TOP"

>
  <image imageURL="images/picture1.jpg"
    thumbURL="thumbs/picture1.jpg"
    linkURL=""
    linkTarget="">
    <caption>Picture 1</caption>
  </image>
</simpleviewergallery>
---------------------------------------------------------------

Thanks

You can not use JavaScript inside the gallery.xml, you can however use a server side script such as php to create a dynamic XML. If you look through the forums you can find examples of this being done.

Thanks Mike, but I’m afraid php and server side scripts are way beyond my knowledge base. Guess I'll have to live without that effect.
