Showing And Hiding Layers.

Apr 15, 2003

I have a question. If you have a HTML list that pops up as a menu under a graphic in a layer when you mouseover the graphics, how do you instruct that layer to vanish again when you mouseout from the menu?

I can do onMouseOver show the layer and onMouseOut hide the layer, but I'm stuck when it comes to applying that to a larger area (ie: multiple clickable items). I can think of ways of doing it, but they're a bit clunky and I'm assuming there's a good or 'proper' way of achieving this.

I need to find a way to show/hide layers with the help of clicking a check box. I want it to be the default layer, then when a check box is clicked, that layer shows up. I need it to be able to display multiple layers (overlapping) that are linked to which check box is checked or unchecked. Code:

Showing And Hiding Layers With CSS?

Oct 18, 2010

I'm trying to show and hide layers with css and a javascript function. It works, but the only thing I can't figure out is how to make it display ONLY one of the layers on initial load. Below is the following code that appears in the html doc.


<script type="text/javascript">
//visible layers
function $_(IDS) { return document.getElementById(IDS); }
function setVisible( IDS ) {


I can't seem to just get the "BIO" layer to display by itself on the initial page load.

Flash In Div Layers Not Showing In IE?

Jul 14, 2009

I'm building a website that consists of several overlapping div layers containing swf's. It looks good in Safari but IE is only showing the layer with z index 1. I can tell by the sound in one of the swf's that they do get loaded, but they are just not visible. Is this solved by another way of embedding? I'm using swf object.

Here's the code I'm using between my head tags:

<script type="text/javascript" src="swfobject.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
swfobject.registerObject("music", "6.0.0", "expressInstall.swf");
swfobject.registerObject("index", "6.0.0", "expressInstall.swf");

Layers Demo

Jul 23, 2005

Anyone know of any good beginners guide to layers online, preferably with
examples of form elements (initially populated from a database) updating the
parent page?

I have the basic functionality working with a popup window and
'opener.document.form1', but this doesn't look that good and I can't get it
to fill anything but a form element on the parent page.

Onmouseout And Layers

Dec 9, 2005

I have a DIV that becomes visible when a link above it is moused over.

The DIV has links in it like so:

<div class="popup" onmouseout="hideLayer(this);">
<a class="popuplink" href="page1.html">Link 1</a><br/>
<a class="popuplink" href="page2.html">Link 2</a><br/>
<a class="popuplink" href="page3.html">Link 3</a><br/>
<a class="popuplink" href="page4.html">Link 4</a><br/>

When you mouse out of the div, it goes back into hidden. But as soon as I
touch any of the links, it hides, thinking I've left the DIV.

Now, I'm assuming this is a z-index layer issue, but I've tried every
combination of things I could think of to prevent the mouseout action when
mouseing over one of the links.

I tried setting div.popup's z-index higher than a.popuplink's, lower than
a.popuplinks, and the same as. (I did set each to a position as well.)

What am I missing?

AJAX And Scrolling Layers

Jul 20, 2006

I have a layer, which is a DIV that has overflow set to "auto", so it
looks like a little pop-up window, even though it's just a layer.

So if the content of that window makes the user scroll down to read it,
and the user clicks a link while scrolled down, and the AJAX function
calls new data into that DIV, that data, if overflowed, will also be
scrolled down.

So basically it's like if you scrolled down to the bottom of,
clicked a link to, and when you got to, the page
was scrolled to the bottom of the page instead of at the top.

Any way I can make sure when the new data is written to the layer, that
the overflow scrolling is scrolled to the top of the layer?

Show Hide Layers

Apr 16, 2007


The idea is that the blue help text rechtangle will have to remain
visible when mouse over (because there will be soon links in it) and
invisible when onmouseout.

I have now placed javascript on the small numbered balls and within
the rechtangle itself.

But I have it in a way that when "onmouseout" the blue help rechtangle
will be hidden. But now the onmouseout event is acting like
onmouseover. Any Ideas to do this correctly? So right now when you
onmouseover it it will disappear :S

If I get this working I can start thinking of putting a timeout on the
rechtangle for it to disappear within a couple of seconds after

JQuery :: Div Layers And Zindex?

May 7, 2010

now my question: I have designed a layout that has a menu in a left div layer (#left-area). When clicking on a link, it creates and opens a new div layer in the right div area (#right-area).

Each of the layers is draggable, sizable etc, but my problem is that the order they are created, is the order the z-index is set as. Explained: if i open "link 1", then "link 2", the "link 2" div will always be on top of the "link 1" div. I want the ability to change the order (z-index??), of the layer just by clicking on the layer, so that if i click on the "link 1" layer, it will bring that to the front, and the "link 2" layer will appear below it.

There must be a way to do this... i have seen examples at . Is there a way to do it with jQuery. I have searched everywhere, but i cannot see the function/command.

Mouseover Causes Text To Appear And Allows Layers/

Sep 6, 2011

Below is a script I have that displays a list of summary info for multiple people.When you mouse over some ones summary info, a bio appears below that summary info (pushing everything below it down). What I'd like to do is take it further and allow more layers. For example, when you hover over their bio,more info about them pops up below that, and so on.I know you're probably tired of seeing mousevent /text questions but I'm desperate at this point. If some one could just add a mouseover event to the bio section that displayed more text below it would suffice and I could take it from there.

Heres the code:
<script type="text/javascript">
var BrowserDetect = {[code].....

Validation Of Form With Layers

Aug 9, 2003

I've tested a very good validation script called(fValidate ). Now, I want it to implement into a php-form which has 2 layers. Layers are called with following code:

function showLayer(layer)
strHidden = ( !document.layers ) ? "hidden" : "hide";
strVisible = ( !document.layers ) ? "visible" : "show";

if( document.layers ){
lyrForm1 = document.idForm1;
lyrForm2 = document.idForm2;

} else if( document.getElementById ){

lyrForm1 = document.getElementById("idForm1").style;
lyrForm2 = document.getElementById("idForm2").style;

} else if( document.all ){

lyrForm1 = document.all["idForm1"].style;
lyrForm2 = document.all["idForm2"].style;

lyrForm1.visibility = (layer == "idForm1") ? strVisible : strHidden;
lyrForm2.visibility = (layer == "idForm2") ? strVisible : strHidden;

return false;

[<A HREF="javascript:void(0);" showLayer('idForm1');">page 1</A>]
[<A HREF="javascript:void(0);" showLayer('idForm2');">page 2</A>]

When I submit the form, the validation script alerts the first "wrong" field which is on layer 1 (invisible because the submit button is on layer 2). Normally it goes to that wrong field, but instead it submits the form...

Does anyone has any experience with validation of layered forms?

There is also the possibility of making a custom validation function. I could make use of it, but then... how does javascript know on which layer the wrong field is/was...?

Show/hide Layers

Feb 21, 2004

I'm designing a site that implements popup menus. There are several menus and each one is called by a mouseover event on an image. Each menu is set to show for about 3 seconds, and then it will go away. The only problem I am having is if you roll over two or more different images, both of the popup menus will display. I need some help on showing only one popup at a time. I'm sure it would be something like this...

HTML Code:

i = popup numbers; //which should be either 1 or 0
if (i == 1) {
hide(previous popup);

else {
I'm just not sure on how to determine the previous popup. Any suggestions?

I am trying to develop a quiz system.Here is a simplified version of my code with lots of modifications made mainly for easier comprehension.

The reason why I ask this is,is because the number of questions in the quiz depends on the value of the javascript variable "count".Therefore,if the value of count is 5,the number of questions would be 5,if it is 6 the number of questions will be 6,etc.

Checkboxes - Toggle Map Layers On And Off

Mar 12, 2010

We're using a JavaScript with Google Maps to load geographic data files and define parameters in Google's API. I have a working script that just needs one small change. The checkboxes toggle map layers on and off. Right now, only the last layer in the list is checked on load. We want all layers to be checked (and therefore displayed) on load.

Here's the [URL]

And here's my script:
<script type="text/javascript">
var map;
var userAdded = 1;
var layers = {
{"url": "[URL]",
"name": "Stream & Wetland Mitigation", .....

Here's some related HTML for display:
<input type="hidden" id="url" value=""/>
<div id="map" style="width: 870px; height: 800px; float:left; border: 1px solid black;"></div>
<div id="sidebar" style="float:left; overflow-vertical:scroll; height: 800px; width:150px; border:1px solid black">
<table id="sidebarTABLE">
