View Full Version : Imagemap mouseover image change

03-18-2004, 07:24 AM
Ive made an imagemap, ive added in a few hotspots to the imagemap which link to other pages, all the hotspots are rectangular.

What i wanted to know was is there any script that will load an image in the imagemap's hotspot when you move the mouse over that hotspot?

Ive tried a few things but none of them worked. Racking my brains here

In theory you could load an image to be place over the current image at the exact place of the hotspot, but most people just take the big image you use for image map and cut it to pieces. making sure that each hotspot is 1 piece, then do an image swap on that image.

Read this article (http://www.alistapart.com/articles/sprites/).

Bookmark that site, and check it every Friday for new content (they skip some weeks - when they do, surf the archives). It's easily one of the best resources on the web for design-type stuff using standards and tricks I know I never would think up.
