Thanks,

The same way you would for a regular image. There are many ways to do image rollovers (if that is what you are talking about). If the code for the flip or rollover is something like:

<img src="some1.jpg" onmouseover="flip(this.src, 'some2.jpg')" onmouseout="flip(this.src, 'some1.jpg')">You can just add the code for the drop down:

<img src="some1.jpg" onmouseover="flip(this.src, 'some2.jpg');dropdownmenu(this, event, menu1, '150px')" onmouseout="flip(this.src, 'some1.jpg');delayhidemenu()">As long as the two scripts do not conflict, it will be fine.

Thanks very much for replying, but i'm being a bit thick. I'm using this script for the image flip:

<HEAD>
<script language="JavaScript">
{
ar=new Image();
ar.src="ar.gif";
aron=new Image();
aron.src="aron.gif";

jo=new Image();
jo.src="jo.gif";
joon=new Image();
joon.src="joon.gif";

}

function imageChange(imageID,imageName)
{
document.images[imageID].src=eval(imageName+".src");
}
</script>
</HEAD>


<BODY>
<a href="artists.html" onMouseOver="imageChange('ar','aron')" onMouseOut="imageChange('ar','ar')"><img src="ar.gif" border="0" name="ar"></a>
<a href="join.html" onMouseOver="imageChange('jo','joon')" onMouseOut="imageChange('jo','jo')"><img src="jo.gif" border="0" name="jo"></a>
</BODY>

and this script for the drop menu:

<HEAD>
<style type="text/css">

#dropmenudiv{
position:absolute;
border:1px solid black;
border-bottom-width: 0;
font:normal 12px Verdana;
line-height:18px;
z-index:100;
}

#dropmenudiv a{
width: 100%;
display: block;
text-indent: 3px;
border-bottom: 1px solid black;
padding: 1px 0;
text-decoration: none;
font-weight: bold;
}

#dropmenudiv a:hover{ /*hover background color*/
background-color: yellow;
}

</style>

<script type="text/javascript">

Either add in the drop down code to the mouse events as shown in my example or create new ones for the image tag:

<a href="artists.html" onMouseOver="imageChange('ar','aron');dropdownmenu(this, event, menu1, '150px')" onMouseOut="imageChange('ar','ar');delayhidemenu()"><img src="ar.gif" border="0" name="ar"></a>or:

<a href="artists.html" onMouseOver="imageChange('ar','aron')" onMouseOut="imageChange('ar','ar')"><img src="ar.gif" onmouseover="dropdownmenu(this, event, menu1, '150px')" onmouseout="delayhidemenu()" border="0" name="ar"></a>Whichever works best for you.

Sorry, it's me again. The script works fine but i have got a page with alot of tables and ever since i installed the script if i use the back button to that page one of the tables gets larger each time. I can't give you a link to the page as i'm workning offline, but just wondered if you know why this could be.
Thanks again.

Very hard to tell without seeing it in action. There is a good chance that it is not the script. Take the script off and double check.

Do you know how to change the text colours seperate from the rest of the page as it automatically goes to the text colour i have set in the body.
Thanks again.

Here is where that is controlled:

<style type="text/css">

#dropmenudiv{
position:absolute;
border:1px solid black;
border-bottom-width: 0;
font:normal 12px Verdana;
line-height:18px;
z-index:100;
}

#dropmenudiv a{
width: 100%;
display: block;
text-indent: 3px;
border-bottom: 1px solid black;
padding: 1px 0;
text-decoration: none;
font-weight: bold;
}

#dropmenudiv a:hover{ /*hover background color*/
background-color: yellow;
}

</style>Using valid css style you can add colors to the drop down division. See Blooberry (http://www.blooberry.com/indexdot/css/propindex/all.htm) for details or use your favorite css style resource.

I want to let the menu appear to the left and to the right, a bit like this

image (mouseover: menu appears at the left side of the image)
image2 (mouseover: menu appears at the right side of the image)
and so on

does this work, and if its possible, can you help me?^^
