Rotating Quotes With Text Fading

Dec 10, 2007

I've got a simple javascript that rotates quotes randomly. It's very basic, so I wanted to add a fade in/ fade out transition to the text to make it more appealing. I've researched around the net and have had trouble finding sources to help me out. Here is the code.

<script language="JavaScript">
function rotateEvery(sec)
var Quotation=new Array()

Quotation[0] = '...The big brown fox jumped over the tall fence'
Quotation[1] = '...The wind is blowing cold snow across the dark black road'
Quotation[2] = '...Fall has many colors and black is not one of them'
Quotation[3] = '...the blue bird lives in the big red barn'
Quotation[4] = '....Mr. Grant really believes that the Bull’s skills, which are widespread, are utterly godlike even though he acts like he doesn’t think so'
Quotation[5] = 'Sixth quotation'
Quotation[6] = 'You can add <b>as many</b> quotations <b>as you like</b>'

var which = Math.round(Math.random()*(Quotation.length - 1));
document.getElementById('textrotator').innerHTML = Quotation[which];

setTimeout('rotateEvery('+sec+')', sec*5500);

JQuery :: Fading In/out Text In Relation To An Image?

Aug 18, 2010

I'm currently working on this page. The problem I have is when you hover over each image it fade's into color, I also want the text below to go from one color to another. Also, I want the image to fade in/out if you hover over the text below the image.

I used this tutorial and I'm using the two image technique which has the following jquery:

// wrap as a jQuery plugin and pass jQuery in to our anoymous function
(function ($) {
$.fn.cross = function (options) {

JQuery :: Fading Multiple Text Items In And Out

Dec 10, 2010

When my page loads I want some text to fade in on my header, display for a few seconds, thenfade out, followed by a second piece of text which does the same, then a third etc. Ideally, I would like all the text elements to loop infinitely. I have managed to get the effect I want with one piece of text usingthese simple lines of code but am stumped when it comes to the subsequent ones. From what my small brain has computed I think the option may be to put all my text items in a list, set the initial list div to display: nonethen apply the fadein, display, fadeout to each in turn. But I don't know what I would put in the script to acheive this (create some sort of array with the li items?)

My searches keep leading me to image carousels etc which I couldn't work out how to configure for text. Also I'm not sure if the (hidden) list would just be dropped onto the page for non-javascipt enabled browsers messing up my page layout, so maybe I need to pull the text from a file / folder?
<script type="text/javascript">
$(function() {
<div id="hdrtext">
first line of text

Jquery :: Fading Text And Image In Slideshow At The Same Time

Mar 26, 2010

I am trying to have text that is placed over an image cross fade into another image with text placed over it. I am using jquery and the images are cross fading perfectly. The text isn't working so well and in Firefox it seems to be very choppy and even sometimes the text just disappears and then there is a blank slide without any text or the text is showing up on the wrong image. Here is the code I have so far:

HTML Code:
<div id="slides">
<div class="slide">
<img src="_images/placeholder3.jpg" width="695" height="195" alt="A Passion for Service" />
<div class="slideText">
<h1>And A Different Heading</h1>
<p>With the appropriate solution for each client, we provide biomedical engineering and information technology services to suit your needs.</p>

I am new to jquery and am going through the Sitepoint book "JQuery: Novice to Ninja. I am using the crossfade code from the book and I tried to apply it to the text as well.

Fading A Layer. Is This Possible?

Jul 23, 2005

I am trying to make a banner the size of the with of my screeen, in
a layer.

BUt I also want to fade it to a complete transperency to reveal the contents
of what's behind it (my page ofcourse) and possible close or hide the faded

I've seen stuff like that happen in a flash everonment. I was thinking about
using a transition at first to go from one page to another with an
introductory page.

But I rather have everything on one page and just fade the introdutory layer
into the page. Is that too much work for jscript?

Website Crash In IE When Fading / Why Is This?

Apr 7, 2009

My site works fine in Firefox, but it crashes in IE.

I am using alot of jQuery in order to fade in content. When the user clicks on one of the above links a few times, it will crash in IE.

Here is my site code...

How am I able to have a gallery of images fading in and out as the background of a DIV? It's currently just a static background using CSS.You can view the HTML page in question here:

The DIV container is the one with the ID of #MainContent

It probably couldn't be done using CSS be how could I achieve this with Javascript?

Fading Background Images ?

Feb 22, 2010

I've prepared the following page: [url]

But I would prefer the background images to fade in and out rather than change abruptly. I've spent hours searching for appropriate code, but have met a dead end so far.

Incidentally, I presume that the delay before the first background image appears is because of all the images pre-loading. Can anyone suggest a way to immediately display the first image?

Color Fading Function

Aug 22, 2002

I used to use this function in text fading routines (tooltips/message tickers) but now I tend to use opacity (which is not compatible with all browsers but I find it more flexible as it allows images, URLs any style sheets). The function returns a color "between" 2 colors.

* Function : getColor
* Parameters :start - the start color (in the form "RRGGBB" e.g. "FF00AC")
*end - the end color (in the form "RRGGBB" e.g. "FF00AC")
*percent - the percent (0-100) of the fade between start & end
* returns : color in the form "#RRGGBB" e.g. "#FA13CE"
* Description : This is a utility function. Given a start and end color and
* a percentage fade it returns a color in between the 2 colors
* Author :
function getColor(start, end, percent)
var r1=hex2dec(start.slice(0,2));
var g1=hex2dec(start.slice(2,4));
var b1=hex2dec(start.slice(4,6));

var r2=hex2dec(end.slice(0,2));
var g2=hex2dec(end.slice(2,4));
var b2=hex2dec(end.slice(4,6));

var pc = percent/100;

r= Math.floor(r1+(pc*(r2-r1)) + .5);
g= Math.floor(g1+(pc*(g2-g1)) + .5);
b= Math.floor(b1+(pc*(b2-b1)) + .5);

return("#" + dec2hex(r) + dec2hex(g) + dec2hex(b));

/*** These are the simplest HEX/DEC conversion routines I could come up with ***/
/*** I have seen a lot of fade routines that seem to make this a ***/
/*** very complex task. I am sure somene else must've had this idea ***/

var hexDigit=new Array("0","1","2","3","4","5","6","7","8","9","A","B","C","D","E","F");
function dec2hex(dec){return(hexDigit[dec>>4]+hexDigit[dec&15]);}
function hex2dec(hex){return(parseInt(hex,16))}

This template is using gallerific with jquery, for some reason the fade of the template is not working on IE8 and IE9.

It is not problem of the original script as the fade works very well as you can see at: [url]

The code of jquery-1.3.2.js and jquery.galleriffic.js is exactly the same as I'm using the same files...

The only difference is that the template is using some custom code as follow:

Fading An ActiveX-object Into The Background

Oct 22, 2005

How can I create a fade with javascript that fade an activex object
(quicktime) to the background and not to the IE windowed control.

I call this function several times, each time decreasing the "opacity".
id is the quicktime activex object.

I have tried to set background:tranparent and
background-color:transparent in my style sheet.

//change the opacity for different browsers
function changeOpac(opacity, id) {
var object = document.getElementById(''+id+'').style;
if (object.opacity) {
object.opacity = (opacity / 100);
} else if (object.MozOpacity) {
object.MozOpacity = (opacity / 100);
} else if (object.MKhtmlOpacity) {
object.KhtmlOpacity = (opacity / 100);
} else if (object.filter) {
object.filter = "alpha(opacity=" + opacity + ")";

JQuery :: Best Practice For Fading-in An Image ?

Apr 14, 2010

I have a photo blog [url] and want to create an effect that fades-in the displayed picture when the page is loaded.

An important requirement for me would be that the page also has to work without Javascript.

Currently I am using the following small plugin:

It is called directly beneath the <img> element:

This way it works fine with the current versions of Firefox and IE. I did not test other browsers or versions yet. I tried to call it in $(document).ready but then IE might display the picture shortly before it is hidden and faded-in.

Since I am not 100% happy with having the code in the middle of the HTML and with depending on the timing of execution to avoid flickering I wanted to ask for other solution or best practices to achieve what I would like to do.

One solution that came to my mind is to do create the image in JScript and only fade it in after it is loaded. To work without Javascript I could still put the <img> element where it was but within a <noscript> element. But not sure how well the <noscript> is supported by older or exotic browsers.
