image map query
background color?

I'm using a gif with transparent areas; these function as the clickable areas in an image map. They work fine.

However, I'd like them to turn a color when hovered over. I've tried

.crack{
background-color:transparent}
.crack:hover{
background-color:red}
<area "class="crack" cords...

but it doesn't play. Testing in Firefox.

Any suggestions?

I'm a bit afraid it's going to be javasript that'll be the answer, but I'd love to be proven wrong.

Perhaps something we need to put on the CSS3 (or CSS4) wish list.

I also think that is JavaScript, not CSS.

actually - here's a simple solution using css. It may not work for image maps (I've honestly never used them).

in your code wrap the objects of class crack in an anchor tag. For example:


<a class="hack" href="javascript:void()"><div class="crack"></div></a>

now in your css put this:


a.hack:link .crack,a.hack:visited .crack
{
background-color:transparent;
}

a.hack:hover .crack
{
background-color:red;
}

that should work! It has its limitations on what can be put inside of the anchor tag (which is why my drop-down ain't working...) but hopefully it works for you. Tell me if it does or not!

Ryan, thanks, nice try, no cigar.

Fixed it with images underneath the transparent areas and some script. Messy.

Cheers

ya that was going to be my other suggestion, but it's definitely a messier solution. Well, glad you got it working.
