Continuous movement of image in screen

Moving Image We have seen how to move image in the screen , we will extend the same technique to move image continuously vertically from top to bottom and then horizontally from left to right.

Use of timer

To give continues move command we have used timer using setTimeout function. The same timer get reset by using clearTimeout function. Each reset will position the image at fixed location. For this we have used a function reset1() Here is the complete code of the above demo

function reset1(){
document.getElementById('i1').style.left= "500px";
document.getElementById('i1') "100px";


function move_img(str) {

var x=document.getElementById('i1').offsetTop;
x= x +100;
document.getElementById('i1') x + "px";


function disp(){
var step=1; // Change this step value
var y=document.getElementById('i1').offsetTop;
var x=document.getElementById('i1').offsetLeft;
if(y < 600 ){y= y +step;
document.getElementById('i1') y + "px"; // vertical movment
if(x < 800){x= x +step;
document.getElementById('i1').style.left= x + "px"; // horizontal movment


function timer(){
var y=document.getElementById('i1').offsetTop;
var x=document.getElementById('i1').offsetLeft;
document.getElementById("msg").innerHTML="X: " + x  + " Y : " + y

<body >
<img src=images/help.jpg id='i1' style="position:absolute; left: 500; top: 100;">
<input type=button onClick=timer() value='Start'>
<input type=button onClick=reset1() value='Reset'>
<div id='msg'></div>

pls help me to make an image to move from left to right using javascript


I pasted the above entire code and tried using it with teacher's car. Does the size of the object matter? What's the largest object size I can use?


Could you please add circle movement of image. For example shark is rotating the boat.


Is it possible to move an object according to certain rules, parallel to line or in given distance from circle or whatever custom line
Thank you in advance


By adjusting X , Y values we can move the image in any direction. We can apply math formula to work out different X , Y values to move the image in an circle.
