    Default Image w/ description tooltip

    Hi there,
    I am successfully using this java script by Sharon Paine.
    Image w/ description tooltip from Dynamic Drive.
    I have a lot of images and was wondering if anyone knows how to stop the preload of images so that they load only on mouse over. I think its probably some kind of preload algorithm.
    All help will be greatly appreciated
    Richard

    You could remove the preload routine but, other adjustments might be needed for the script to continue to function. In any case, removing preload will result in a noticeable lag for most users the first time each image is accessed.

    Warning: Please include a link to the DD script in question in your post. See this thread for the proper posting format when asking a question.


    Please post a link to the page on your site that contains the problematic script so we can check it out.
