What is an image slider?
Image Slider or Image Carousel is an expedient way to show multiple images on a website. Alluring flashy images can draw many visitors to the site. Below image shows a sample image slider:
Step – 1: Create the sructure of image slider using HTML and insert images from the respective sources. Below is the complete HTML code for doing this:
Step – 2: Once we have created the HTML structure for our image slider, the next step is to style the slider using CSS. We will add styles to the images, backgrounds etc. We will also style the dots and make our images responsive and browser friendly using CSS. Below is the complete CSS code for styling our image slider:
In the code snippet below, at the very beginning, we took all the div elements with class name ‘image-sliderfade’ in an array and did the same for div’s with class name ‘dots’ by using getElementByClassName() listener. After that, we set the display for all of the divs, containing images. In the last for-loop, we have erased the class name for each element of array dots. After we are done with these, we set the display as a block of the image to shown and append the class name to the corresponding element of dots array. Function setTimeout is used for calling the function showslides() in an interval of 2 seconds.
Once we are done with all of the above steps, we will get the slider up and working as shown below:
