Conveyor Belt slideshow script
http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex14/leftrightslide.htm

Is it possible to have an image over the top of a script?
I would like to have an image (.png or gif) which has a cutout (transparent) window for the script to show through.

I can see the script images using the above script, but cannot stop or click on the image.

Example 1 http://www.drachselsried.eu/test/presentation.htm But cannot open link in a new window.

Example 2 http://www.drachselsried.eu/test/carousel2-1.htm

Images can be seen but not activated. Is there a solution?

This post is similar to my earlier post which had visitors but no answer.

Thanks to all everybody.

Regards

Drachsi

Just an update. I also tried creating a sliced image, leaving the window section out and same thing happans, works away from the image but not behind the image.

A number of people have viewed this request and no answers, am I to assume there is no solution?

If something is covered but you can see through the cover different browsers will handle this differently and different see through covers will be treated differently at times in some browsers. But there is no situation like this where all browsers will allow the mouse activated links and events of the covered item to fire in all cases. You are 'better off' with a see through element as the cover, rather than an image, but even then some browsers will prevent the events from firing.

Thanks for the reply, Not certain what you mean by "See through element" and how would I impliment it? Would not this need be fairly common?

Thanks in advance

A see through element is like:


<div style="background: transparent;"></div>

You would set its height and width as desired, and most likely position it absolutely over whatever you wanted to cover.

However, as I say, it will only allow things underneath to be clicked, or moused over in some browsers. So I really wasn't offering a solution, just mentioning that the other way of covering something with something see through (using such an element) wouldn't work out much better than an image, though in some browsers you will be able to mouse through it, while an image would be like never.

I have not been able to get the Carousel script to work the way I wanted, but the following script http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex14/presentationslide.htm does work if set in a table surrounded by the image.

Is it possible to have the images paused when the mouse is over an image, to give time to read the text in the first image, other images are just visual. I have tried having the link open in a new window, without success. I used ....abc.com","blank" and ....abc.com","_new" How do I open in a new window?

If anybody wants to see the final result when it'sworking, I can post a link here if wanted.

Thanks in advance
