Hi, newbie alert! I'm trying to get rid of the link details in the status bar that appears when the mouse is over an image map. I tried using the two scripts on the JavaScriptKit website, which work with everything other than image maps. Any suggestions welcome, especially really, really straightforward ones :D
TIA

Something like this

<area shape="rect" coords="34,136,70,177" href="mypage.html" onMouseOver="window.status='.'">

will hide the actual url, you will see a . in the status bar.

OK, I tried that, but it didn't work, what am I doing wrong? Is it something to do with the frames? There's two frames, a top one, with the image map, and a lower one, where the linked page loads. The url still appears. Thanks for your help.

Hmm.. that works for me.

What browser are you using? Is there a javascript error on the page that might be stopping any other scripts from working?

Do you have a sample of the image map area tags?
