    AJAX Page - looking for advice about next step please

    repost of http://www.sitepoint.com/forums/showthread.php?t=480108, originally posted May 21, 2007, 22:41

    I've read this article:
    http://www.oracle.com/technology/pub...lman-ajax.html

    And from reading it thought it'd be interesting to try a bit of Ajax on my site.

    What I'd really like to do is to set up a little ajax widget on my homepage:

    http://jimpix.co.uk/

    So that if people want to view more of the ecard thumbnails, they can click little next/prev icons to view the next / previous 8 thumbnail ecard images. I suppose in a way I want it to be similar to the thumbnail widget used on flickr.com.

    I've managed to get a simple bit of ajax running on this demo page:

    http://jimpix.co.uk/ajax01/001.asp

    If you type a number - e.g. 1 into the text field, and tab out of it, then 8 images are displayed. If you change the number, and tab out again, then the images are updated.

    What I'd like to do is to have images to allow next / prev options, but I am stuck now!

    I'm hoping to do this with basic hyperlinks, but I can't work out the syntax to get buttons / links / images which users can click, which will take them to the "background" 002.asp page - so rather than have to type a number, I'd like them to be able to click an image, and, for example, view the next 8 images.

    I don't have a problem with the asp page to display the next 8 messages - my query is more about how to format the HTML / Javascript etc, to link in with the asp page - because I am trying to use AJAX to do the work in the background, rather than have a simple hyperlink, which would be dead easy...

    Any help much appreciated... apologies for the vague query - I suppose I know what I'd like to do, and apart from my rather simplistic starting point, am not sure where to go from here.

    Thanks

    Jim

    Is it possible for a moderator to move this thread to the ASP Classic Forum please? Thanks
