|B.E.C. Image Swap is a simple applet for
swapping images each time you re-visit a page. You specify a list of images for
Image Swap to keep track of, and it will display the first of these when a user visits
your page. The next time they visit the page within the browser session (either by
clicking on a link back to the page, or even using the browser's Back
button), the next image in the list will be displayed.
Each of the images you specify will display in turn, and then flip back to the
original if all have been shown. This will keep on going for the duration of the
Note that this works even using the back/forward browser
buttons are used, because the applet controls the image display, not the browser's
B.E.C. Image Swap will even scale the images if you want.
In this way, all images will be scaled to fit what ever applet size you specify.
This is particularly useful if you have a number of differently sized images.
It is also useful if you want to restrict the image size, but do not want your
images to be cropped.
Finally, you can specify the background colour for the
applet, so that it fits in with the rest of your site (note that this is really only
effective is you are not resizing the images to fit the applet size, because with scaling
switched on, the images occupy the entire applet area).
Features within B.E.C. Image Swap are:
- any number of source images can be swapped between (simply
specify the image URL)
- scale the source images to fit exactly within the applet
display area (if this is what you want)
- customise the background colour
Standard Applet parameters are
used to customise the appearance and behaviour of the applet. An example is shown below, along with the HTML code that is used to generate that example.
Refer to your standard HTML literature of web sites for
