View Full Version : Mouse Over -Small image/link show Web page preview

I wonder if someone might be able to tell me how to do a similar mouse over effect like the one on this site http://www.templatemonster.com/categ...from=1&cat=All

Move over one of the templates and you will see what i mean.....

There are apparently serveral ways to do this using Javascript or CSS - neither of which i am the best at- i have tried a few web searches but dont seem to come up help or samples.......can anyone point me in the right direction

Thanks in advance

Well. Looking at their source it looks like all they are doing is:

target="_blank"><IMG SRC="PATH/TO/IMAGE.jpg"
border=0 border=1 style="border-color: [HEX COLOR CODE]"
onmouseover="showtrail('[IMAGE URL]')" onmouseout="hidetrail()"

Now, I am not a javascript guru like some on this forum, but i am pretty sure that is how it is handled. Just get familiar with javascript functions, especially those used A LOT (onmouseout, onmouseover, etc...) and get familiar with the code framework style. Hope it works!


The image being called for in this section
<IMG SRC="PATH/TO/IMAGE.jpg" is the thumbnail image. The image being called for here
onmouseover="showtrail('[IMAGE URL]')" is the larger image that will pop-up.
