    Need help with modifying this code:

    This code works for me except instead of a random image upon page reload... is there a way to modify this so it just does a random image about every 5 seconds? To be honest I don't really even need it to be random, if it can just play a list of images in order that works too.

    Code:
    <script type="text/javascript">
    <!--
     var imlocation = "RotatingImages/";
     var currentdate = 0;
     var image_number = 0;
     function ImageArray (n) {
       this.length = n;
       for (var i =1; i <= n; i++) {
         this[i] = ' '
       }
     }
     image = new ImageArray(3)
     image[0] = '1.jpg'
     image[1] = '2.jpg'
     image[2] = '3.jpg'
     var rand = 60/image.length
     function randomimage() {
     	currentdate = new Date()
     	image_number = currentdate.getSeconds()
     	image_number = Math.floor(image_number/rand)
     	return(image[image_number])
     }
     document.write("<img src='" + imlocation + randomimage()+ "'>");
    //-->
    </script>

    Despite the similar sounding names, Java is not the same as Javascript.
    Moving from Java forum to Javascript forum.

    We could write a custom answer for you, but what you are after is known as a "slideshow" or sometimes (inaccurately) as a "lightbox". There are *TONS* of scripts out there for all kinds of slideshows. Just google for "javascript slide show" and be prepared to be inundated.
