View Full Version : Javascript script for image overs revealing text

08-25-2010, 07:04 AM
Hi all,

I was just wondering if there is a JavaScript tutorial online that shows you how to do similar hover effect to what Twitter does with the trending topics. Such as Inception.

When you hover over it and a black bubble appears.

Also I'm not sure what it is called.

If anyone knows how to do it, It would be appreciated.

Not hard to do.

The little arrow that they put at the top, pointing to the topic, has to be an image. And if all the boxes are the same size then just using a single image of box plus arrow would be simplest. You'd just throw the image up over the point of the mouse and then you could put text on top of the image.

If you'd get more specific, you might get a more complete answer.
