Lets start with the HTML.


  • div “show ” – this is where the images are displayed [ fixed width/ height, overflow hidden]
  • div “slideHolder” – is the div that holds the slides [relative to “show”, images float left]

Slide Concept

Use the margin left property to move the slideHolder div inwards show div.  The overflowing part is hidden by the css. A timer function is used to iteratively reduce the margin left , lets call the function as slider(). A function named revert() is used to revert back the margins to its original position.

The JavaScript
