View Full Version : Thumbnailviewer2: create additional command to set caption in specific div : Revision

08-18-2012, 02:08 AM
1) Script Title: Thumbnailviewer2

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamici...thumbnail2.htm

3) Describe problem: I would like to create an additional command which tells each thumbnail to send a caption to a specific div id on mouseover. It would be similar to what the script is doing already: sending a command from each thumbnail to a larger image on mouseover, except it would be for text, and it would be in addition to this command. I know the script allows for a "title" to be inputted, but it only lets you display it under the image, and it can't really be styled. A friend of mine has a hunch that what needs to be done is find a javascript function that sets an element based on its id? Help!


This was originally addressed in this thread but I was instructed to start a new thread.

It seems as if the solution is no longer applicable as the code seems to have changed since the solution was posted. Is that so? If so how could this be done with the newer code? Or am I just missing something?

for (var i=0; i<rawopts.length; i++){
var namevalpair=rawopts[i].split(/:(?!\/\/)/) //avoid spitting ":" inside "http://blabla"

the part in red is the part that has been edited, and you can apply css styles to the div class or change the inline styles I have made.
