    Fast & Easy photo slide show using ASP.NET

    Today's 4GuysFromRolla WebWeekly features an article on how to create an ASP.NET page which will generate an index and slide show (loading a new page for each image) from whatever images are in the same directory on the server. I haven't tried it (my web hosts don't do ASP.NET, as far as I know), or tried to customize it, but if anyone does, please post your impressions.

    Neat idea! <img src=/S/cheers.gif border=0 alt=cheers width=30 height=16>

    My only problem is that I like to include a bit more information than can practically be stored within a filename. I usually end up with a database of some sort (either on the website, or static HTML files generated from a gallery application).

    Mark:

    Congratulations on your recent marriage and best wishes to you and Jennifer. I visited your wedding web site. Brilliant idea! Well executed, too.

    What font did you use for your home page main title (the date), and where can it be found?

    Cheers,
    Regards,
    PaulB

    Hi Paul,

    Thanks for your kind words. We've really enjoyed sharing our wedding experiences with everyone!

    I can't remember exactly which font I used for the heading - as you can see, it's an image. I used Fireworks to generate it - I'll check when I get to my home computer this evening to let you know for sure. <img src=/S/thumbup.gif border=0 alt=thumbup width=15 height=15>
