I am designing a website with an imagemap as a navigation pane and I want an effect to happen when certain parts of the image are rolled over by the mouse. I want to switch the imagemap image to a different one (one which highlights the rolled-over bit) depending on which bit gets rolled over. (Sorry if this is confusing) This is my code:
I have an image map, and want the user to be able to click on the map to select or deselect that area. ie assume the map is divided into 50 areas numbered 1 -50, I want a text input box on a form when someone clicks area 5 say, that choice will appear in the textbox, now they click 20,25 and 30 and the text box displays 5,20,25,30. Now if they click 25 again I need that choice to be removed thus the textbox becomes 5,20,30. I'm sure you get the picture.
Utimately I would like the areas to appear in a text area on different lines with a description beside, ie
<textarea> 5 - Red Area 20 - Blue Area 25 - Pink Area 30 - Orange Area </textarea>
I am trying to get a pop up window to open when clicking an image map link. The pop up works but needs to be the size of the image (no white space) Image size is actually 365 x 500. I can not post the url because I am new. It pops up but is a small (not image size) pop up and has white space.
Some history: Although I know that it is considered 'old' technology, I have built hundreds of imagemaps over 10 years for a local photographer who uses a panoramic camera (now a spectacular digital one) to photograph weddings, schools etc. I then pop an imagemap area over each face and add a title (and alt text for IE viewers) that shows up on mouseover to identify the person.
I've been using the jQuery tools library recently and tried changing this tooltip demo which turns an image's title into a tooltip from:
Thus grabbing the title associated with an area rather than an image.
I just built a quick proof of concept using the image map of a family meeting on one of my sites, and viewed it in Firefox. As expected, on hovering over an area the tooltip popped up at top center of the image, with the title text in it. Wow! GREAT! I thought. ;-)
In IE: Tooltip pops up, containing the matching title text, but far away from the clicked area and NOT at top center.
In Opera: No tooltip, browser's title box opens by mouse position, but with out title text, instead it contains the a href link that clicking in the area would go to.
In Chrome: No tooltip, no title.
In Safari: No tooltip, no title.
(BTW All tests were done in current browser versions under Win XP)
I just tried Tero's demo at [URL] in all browsers and it worked fine, in every case the tooltip appeared top center of the image, with the title text in it! So it would seem at first thought to be involved with the way browser manufacturers have built their DOM... But further reading indicates that all post v5 browsers use the same DOM model, so I'm stumped. I've Googled quite a few threads where folk have had js/DOM/imagemaps conflicts, but have found no post resolving the issue.
Since libraries such as jQuery claim to isolate us from browser variances, is it just that imagemaps are considered so 'out of date' that browser manufacturers haven't bothered to update their code to integrate them into the standard DOM? (Bravo FF, 'does it right' again!)
I am looking for a JS script that changes image onmouseover, but then changes a different image elsewhere on the page onmouseclick. I'm a JS n00b so any full script, or pointers to a site that has what I'm looking for would be fantastic!
I have a table with two columns and two rows in it. In the upper left corner, I have a logo image for my company. In the top right column/cell, I have some navigational stuff, no big deal. In the left cell in the 2nd row, I have a list of anchors of different songs I am producing - something like this:
The cell on the right, 2nd row is empty at the start.
On the 2nd row, 1st cell, where the anchors are, on a "mouse over" event, I'd like to display song lyrics and information regarding the song in the right cell, 2nd row as the user moves the mouse over a given anchor.
What is the best way for me to do this? There are a couple of things/issues I can think of right away:
1) Let's say there are 20 anchors in the left column. Let's say that some of the songs' lyrics are quite lengthy and extend past the height of the cell at row 2, left column. How would the system know this in advance (this will make more sense with question #2 below)? Perhaps tell it some type of maximum height you know will never be reached or something?
2) To me it doesn't make a lot of sense to include all this text in the main HTML file since a majority of the time, the user(s) will never move their mouse across ALL the anchors, only one or two. Seems to me there should be some way of "loading" them as soon as the mouse over event occurs.
I am trying to capture the onmouseout event on an option. I know there is no mouseover/out event(in IE 6), therefore I ask, does anyone have a work around?
Essentially what I need is a tooltip that displays the entire contents of a dropdown/select if the contents of the option are getting truncated due to the width of the dropdown/select. And I want to do this while the dropdown/select is expanded.
Can some recommend an open source 3rd party control if there is no solution when using the standard select?
I have a simple mouseover menu using style.visibility property(hide/show). My question is how do I hide all menus other then the one I moused over? Also I have a onmouseover and onmouseout for the image that shows the menu when you mouseover it, how do I keep the image showing when moused over it and mousing over the menu that it shows?
I have two scripts that seem to be overriding each other. they both seem to use the onmouseover function to trigger actions that are vital to each script. to be honest I'm not sure if this is really what happens but when I disable one one works, when I disable the other, the opposite works. so right now it's my best explanation :-p. oh and it's definitely not any scripting variables interference.
I'm using Milonic drop down menu (the trial for testing) and another small piece of code that I've attached that does on mouse over tip bars.
what I'm wondering is if there is a way to make them both work without...breaking one or the other. or if I should just find another solution, which is proving difficult because I can't find one that's super simple and as nice as this one.
I've been going out of my mind trying to get this to work, and now I'm out of time! It seems like it *SHOULD* be simple! All I am trying to do is get all of the <li> items that belong to a particular UL ID, and change the class name onmouseover. I've cut down the code to bare-bones to try and isolate the problem. I can get it to work if I use unique IDS for each list element, but that seems silly. The latest piece of code I am working with:
