    Default Stop Slideshow from starting automatically

    Hi Guys,

    I managed to work with this slideshow very well. Only problem is, that if I refresh my html site the show starts running automatically until I go over it with my mouse. Then it does what it's supposed to do which is start and stop with mouseover. So I guess I need to delete or add some code which prevents the slideshow from starting automatically. Since I'm new to this I've spent days looking for a solution but I couldn't figure out how to do it. Now I'm asking you guys and I'm already saying a big THANKS!

    //Specify the slider's width (in pixels)
    var sliderwidth="300px"
    //Specify the slider's height
    var sliderheight="150px"
    //Specify the slider's slide speed (larger is faster 1-10)
    var slidespeed=2
    //configure background color:

    //Specify the slider's images

    Default Re: Stop Slideshow from starting automatically

    first let me say this isnt a javascript forum its for java (two completely different languages) but thats cool & 2nd u didnt close your highlight tag at the end but i think i get the jist of ur code.... if u want the slide show to start when the mouse hovers over it and not once the page loads u should do something about ur window.onload part because calling the fillup method for .onload executes it automatically as soon as the page is done loading
