    Default Complicated Image Map + Rollover

    I have a jpg of a map and I'm trying to create a image map on top of that with
    lots and lots of hotspots which when clicked pop up text which does not obscure
    the map itself.
    I know how to draw up the hotspots and I guess I have to use layers to create
    the text for each of the hotspots. Then I assume I can use a show/hidelayer
    behaviour to bring the relevant layer to the top.

    Can anyone advise me if there's a better way to do this or simply confirm that
    I'm on the right lines before I begin.

    Thanks

    Dave

    You're on the right track. Get a copy of the AutoLayer extenstion from PVII
    to do this - when one layer is shown, it hides all the others, which will
    save you from having to do that manually - [url]http://www.projectseven.com/[/url].

    Your only remaining problem to solve will then be how to keep the layers
    properly aligned with the map, if the map is held in a centering table. But
    there are ways to do that too, so post back if you need it and I will tell
    you.

    Hi, Murray;

    I'm working on the same type of thing as Dave, but I've got a centering table. Would you mind please posting how to get the layers to show up relative to the centered image, not the browser sides?

    Thanks a lot!
