Hi Everyone - this is my first post but I'm guessing probably the first of many considering the size of the task I've undertaken!

I have a simple (very short) animated gif image, set to play once, and I want the browser to jump to another page automatically once it has played, as I don't want the user to have to physically click or do anything.
I'm using dreamweaver, and I'm guessing that this is where the timeline feature will come in, but I can't find a behaviour to do this.
I have a feeling I'm missing something simple here, so apologise in advance if thats the case.

Thanks everyone - this is an awesome forum btw!

Ian.

Hello nEptune,

Does the animation run for a set length of time?

You may want to use a javascript timer that executes a redirect after a set amount of seconds. Would having "onload" in the image tag not work?

this thread [webmasterworld.com] from the javascript forum may lend a clue.

Thanks for that - I was hoping it would have been some easy fix which I had overlooked but it looks like I'm going to have to use a small javascript.

I'll have a read through the js forum later and see what I can do.

Thanks again!
