Now that we have completed a course on using JavaScript timers, if you do a quick search on Google for JavaScript timers, there are tons of articles about the way JavaScript timers work in all of the different capabilities, including the second link here. If you search for JavaScript timers, there is an article by John Resig, who created JQuery. He actually writes a pretty in-depth description on exactly how the timers work. There is a couple of different timer options that we have. We chose the setInterval so it would just run the whole time, and then we set our timePassed variable and then we just triggered everything off of that particular piece.

This course, which builds on the foundations of Create an Interactive Homepage Marquee with jQuery and Dreamweaver, enhances the marquee with an auto-play feature that automatically advances through the slide images when the page is loaded. Working in a Dreamweaver environment, Chris Converse shows how to add auto play using a combination of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, plus the implementation of hover states in jQuery. This course also covers adding play/pause functionality, as well as an interaction timeout, which will restart the marquee after a specified period of idle time.

Topics include:
  • Previewing a project across browsers and devices
  • Updating CSS and HTML in Dreamweaver
  • Adding debugging code
  • Declaring variables in JavaScript
  • Using setInterval
  • Stopping auto play during user interaction
Subjects:
Web Web Design Projects
Software:
Dreamweaver jQuery

There is a couple of different timer options that we have. We chose the setInterval so it would just run the whole time, and then we set our timePassed variable and then we just triggered everything off of that particular piece.

There is other ways that you can do this. You can start and stop timers and you might even want to look at potentially adding a play/pause button that would actually stop a timer and restart a timer as well. While the marquee might not be a perfect example for that, some other executions that you might have on other projects might really benefit from a play/pause functionality. Well, that concludes this course on adding an autoplay to the marquee. I hope you enjoyed it and I really appreciate you watching!

Q: This course was updated in April, 2013. What changed?
A: Since the release of this course, Chrome conflicts with jQuery 1.6, and browsers run the autoplay when the windows is not in focus. To remedy these issues, the author has added a movie to Chapter 5 that will show you how to:
- Update the version of jQuery
- Detect the focus state of a web window
- Create a compound conditional JavaScript statement
