How to Create 'Rollover Popups' (I cant describe)?

  gplatt2000 15:33 06 Jul 2005

Hi all

Don't really know how to explain what I'm meaning so I gues the best way is to show you an example:

click here

When you roll the mouse over the differnt thread titles, a pop-up box appears, showing details of the first posth within that thread.

I'd like to use this in a slightly differnt way - I have lots of small preview thumbnails for a gallery, and owuld like a pop-up to display the full image if the pointer rolls over the thumbnail. Is this possible? And if so, how? Does it require php? Java? (I really don;t have a clue on things like this so please don;t laugh at my lack of knowledge!)

Any help would be great, and sorry for not describing it too well, please let me know if you don't understand what I mean fully.

Cheers for the reply, I seem to have got that working now.

But as far as I can see, this is only for when the pointer is rolling over a TEXT link? I need it to be possible for when te pointer is rolling over an IMAGE (thumbnails in the gallery).

Do you know if this is possible?

I tried the code as follows:

::<img src="images/photo1p.jpg" width="35" height="35" onmouseover="popup('<img src="images/photo1.jpg"> ','yellow')"; ONMOUSEOUT="kill()"></td>::

but to no avail.

Please view my page which I have tried it on in order to view the source code if it is any help to you: click here

Thanks again

I used the Dynamic Drive Script - Worked fine

I can see an error in your code

images/photo1.jpg"> ','yellow')";

Should be

images/photo1.jpg" ','yellow')";

Take out the >

If that dosen't work - try the code from DD
