dynamic text using settimeout

Hi,

I am trying to create a header on a page that switches between 7 textitems
in an array.
using this code:

<script language="JavaScript">
season=new Array("summer","winter","fall","spring",")
i=0
function raise()
{
setTimeout('i=i+1',2000);
if(i>4){i=0}
}
</script>

</head>

<body onLoad="raise()">
<script language="JavaScript">

document.write(season[i]);
</script>

can anybody please explain me why this doesnot work.

greets,

Sybolt

look at setInterval, setTimeout only runs once. It still won't work the way
I think you want it to because the document.write only executes when the
page is rendered.

Also, the variables in the setTimeout shouldn't be quoted

Start over... Post it up.

Look at: innerHTML and % (modulo arithmetic)

if(i>4){i=0}
}
</script>

</head>

<body onLoad="raise()">
<script language="JavaScript">

document.write(season[i]);
</script>

You asked that same question 6 days ago, with a lot of reply. It should
help you enough to get it working.
