Hi!

I am using javascript and ajax to load in my content onto my div which is all working OK. But at the moment it's kind of static and a bit ugly. 

I am trying to get it to fade in and out so when a new tab is clicked the previous one will fade out then the new one will fade in. 

I have found the syntax to use is $(selector).fadeIn(speed,callback) but I can't figure out where to add this as everywhere I have read says add it after your click function but my code doesn't have that. 

    var bustcachevar=1 //bust potential caching of external pages after initial request? (1=yes, 0=no)
    var loadedobjects=""
    var rootdomain="http://"+window.location.hostname
    var bustcacheparameter="" 
    function ajaxpage(url, containerid){
    var page_request = false
    document.getElementById(containerid).style.display = 'none';
    if (window.XMLHttpRequest) // if Mozilla, Safari etc
    page_request = new XMLHttpRequest()
    else if (window.ActiveXObject){ // if IE
    try {
    page_request = new ActiveXObject("Msxml2.XMLHTTP")
    }
    catch (e){
    try{
    page_request = new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP")
    }
    catch (e){}
    }
    }
    else
    return false
    page_request.onreadystatechange=function(){
    loadpage(page_request, containerid)
    }
    if (bustcachevar) //if bust caching of external page
    bustcacheparameter=(url.indexOf("?")!=-1)? "&"+new Date().getTime() : "?"+new Date().getTime()
    page_request.open('GET', url+bustcacheparameter, true)
    page_request.send(null)
    }
    function loadpage(page_request, containerid){
        if (page_request.readyState == 4 && (page_request.status==200 || window.location.href.indexOf("http")==-1)) {
            document.getElementById(containerid).innerHTML=page_request.responseText;
            document.getElementById(containerid).style.display = 'block';
        }
    } 
    function loadobjs(){
    if (!document.getElementById)
    return
    for (i=0; i<arguments.length; i++){
    var file=arguments[i]
    var fileref=""
    if (loadedobjects.indexOf(file)==-1){ //Check to see if this object has not already been added to page before proceeding
    if (file.indexOf(".js")!=-1){ //If object is a js file
    fileref=document.createElement('script')
    fileref.setAttribute("type","text/javascript");
    fileref.setAttribute("src", file);
    }
    else if (file.indexOf(".css")!=-1){ //If object is a css file
    fileref=document.createElement("link")
    fileref.setAttribute("rel", "stylesheet");
    fileref.setAttribute("type", "text/css");
    fileref.setAttribute("href", file);
    }
    }
    if (fileref!=""){
    document.getElementsByTagName("head").item(0).appendChild(fileref)
    loadedobjects+=file+" " //Remember this object as being already added to page
    }
    }
    }

thanks in advance!

    Re: Changing ajax to fade in and out

    Hi!

    I would use JQuery to simply your AJAX code. It also has native functionality for doing fade in and out.

    Here's an example

    function ajaxpage(url, containerid){
       $.get(url,function(response) {
          $('#'+containerid).fadeOut('slow',function() {
             $('#'+containerid).html($.trim(response));
             $('#'+containerid).fadeIn('slow');
          });
       });
    }
