Hello All,

I have a flash banner. It has along the left hand side four titles of new articles we just released as so:

Article #1
Article #2
Article #3
Article #4

Now I want when the mouse hovers over article #1 for the text for that article to appear either A.) in a new window or preferable b.) to appear over the existing text that lists the articles. I know how to do hover buttons but I am just not sure how to get rid of the text?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Hi. I assume the whole page is in flash ? I would need more details about the whole architecture if you want me to give you code examples.

by example, if the whole site is in flash it's pretty basic to do. Otherwise you'll need javascript to pass parameters between flash and the text. And if the text is not in flash then you'll need some extra scripting support, either php or vb script to write the new content.

it's pretty hard to answer the question without more details though.
