problem with image slide show

Hi all,

We have a slide show in a page which shows slids rotating after every 8-10 seconds with some descriptions about them.

The problem is if the connection speed is slow then the page loads fine but that slide show takes a lot of time to load and (the place we are running the slide show is white blank page till than)

I dont understand why. can someone tell me what can we do for this.

i have think of something like

1.thinking about how to set the position of the mainslide explicitly instead of it figuring out where the content should go.

2.The other thing might be just load a grey image of the exact size at the begining and kick off the slide rotation after all the content is loaded

but not sure if this will work.

can someone give me some example of a faster slide show

Hi all,

I have a slideshow which runs a bit slow initially, when the page is loading. can someone tell me how can i replace it with a image while it is loading and after the slide show has loaded it will replace that static image and start running.

The answer is very simple.. Have a loading image in a div and the slideshow images in a different image. While initially the paghe displays, Make the first div which has loading image icon to be visible using styles and the other div make it hide. After the slideshow loads hide the first div and show the next div... Are u using Ajax to load the slide show?
