I would like to request help from someone, anyone please. I am new at JS and trying to learn.
I have a new navigation scheme that I am going to implement at my site. It already is using JS for rollovers. Right now when you mouse over a hyperlink it pops up an arrow to the left of the hyperlink. I would like to, in the top left cell of the table above it, also have a image come up when the hyperlink is rolled over. The image will be suggestive text in the form of a GIF file (unless their is a better way of getting the message to appear up there using text through JS).
Right now I'm getting a 404 on your test page, but I think I have the idea for what you want.
Here's a great resource [bosrup.com] called the "OverLIB" -- a library for all kinds of rollover functions. It includes text boxes of all kinds, static position, sticky to the cursor, etc. Hope it helps.
I was more looking to keep the existing event (the arrow) and add the suggestive sell text/GIF in the top table first cell when the mouse goes over the hyperlinks. I remember reading about using secondary images/events or something along that lines but just do not know near enough to do this one.
Any advice is appreciated but can understand as this is specific.
I've also seen this kind of nav aid done very well in Flash. I think small touches of Flash can be excellent, once the designer gets rid of the idea that they have gone to Hollywood. The animation moves a lot more comfortably to my eye.
