View Full Version : Popups with an image map?

Jun 30th, 2002, 08:26 PM
Hi all!

Can anyone help me do this right?
I've been trying trial and error so far.

I'm trying to make my pages popup to a specific height and specifications within an image map.

Heres the html so far (the first bit is due to my fiddling!)

<map name="wam.jpg">
<area shape="rect" coords="54,231,110,247" href="about.html" target="popup", "interlock", "width="350", height="400", location=0,
menubar=0, resizable=0, scrollbars="auto", status=0, titlebar=1, toolbar=0,
screenx=0, left=0, screeny=0, top=0">
<area shape="rect" coords="126,229,197,245" href="gallery.html" target="">
<area shape="rect" coords="216,230,324,247" href="contribute.html" target="">
<area shape="rect" coords="7,263,66,281" href="words.html" target="">
<area shape="rect" coords="79,262,135,279" href="games.html" target="">
<area shape="rect" coords="155,263,230,279" href="penpals.html" target="">
<area shape="rect" coords="251,262,355,279" href="contact.html" target="">

Thanks for any advice!

well what you could do is creat a function that handles the windows inquires.

Like so

<script language="javascript">

function popup(url,width,height){




then you take your area and call the funtion

<area shape="rect" coords="251,262,355,279" href="javascript:popup('Whatever.html','150','160')" target="">


This should work(but never does hehehehe j/k)

I'll give it a go now.

It looks like it makes sense!

It didn't work!

Any other ways to do it?

When in doubt ask the experts, I find trial and error only works if you have the know-how in the first place!

Thanks again!
