View Full Version : onmouseover Popout Windows

07-19-2007, 04:08 PM
Outside of manipulating scripts and having read a few chapters from the book on JavaScript that I just purchased, I am a novice when it comes to JavaScript, so please forgive me if I happen to misuse some terminology when asking this question.

The Problem: Until I can create my own, does anyone know of a script or tutorial that will create a popout window when a user hovers over a link? I guess it could be considered a tips window that provides text and links.

When a user hovers over a link, I would like a window to popout that provides some additional information (text and a couple of links). When they mouse off of the link, it disappears.

Most of what I have found discusses what is required to open a new window (window.open) when the user selects a link. I am not worried about that.

Thank you in advance for any insight or assistance that is provided.

I greatly appreciate it.

Maybe I am biting off more than I can chew, but I am hoping to create or find a mouse over pop up window script that looks like http://www.scripts.com/javascript-scripts/frame-scripts/mouseover-popup-windows/ .

Mouse over the "Pop-up Windows" text to view the actual pop up window.

Quick question. Do you have any idea how do they design the popup window? Are they using a table?

Thanks again for taking the time to reply,
