Slideshow

It appears that the question, “How do I create a slide show” has been
asked many times in a variety of ways in this group. Reference has
been made to the O’Reilly book, “Ajax on Rails”. Maybe I need to read
that. In any event, I don’t want to get into a long discussion of the
broad issues relating to how one creates a slide show. My specific
interest is in determining how best to cycle through the images. Ajax
would seem like one obvious methodology although I would need some
help with the implementation. So, my question is: Should I just go
get the O’Reilly book; or, are there other avenues that I should
consider?

Thanks for any input.

You might want to take a look at slideshow.rubyforge.org.

HTH,

Thanks. I’m really looking more towards creating a slideshow view of
images that are contained in already existing photo albums contained
in an already existing application. So, it’s really just a different
view of existing data. Obviously, the big hang up is, “How do I cycle
through the images”. But for that issue, it’s a piece of cake.

Thanks for the input.
