The following script listening shows you how create your own.
Image Rollover Examples:
This is the easiest rollover there is. onMouseOver=”document.image1.src=’onImage.gif’” replaces “outImage.gif” with “onImage.gif”. onMouseOut=”document.image1.src=’outImage.gif’” swapps “outImage.gif” back when the user moves his mouse away from it.
The image tag defines the source of the original image and contains the very important “name” option (name=”image1″).
The disadvantages of this kind of rollover are, that although it is simple, it produces an error message in older browsers, such as Netscape 2.0, Internet Explorer 3.0 and earlier and America Online 2.7 browser. Also, because the second image is downloaded from the server at the same time, there can be a delay when the user rolls over the first image, before it’s replaced with the second.
Rather than using the first method, we suggest you take a look on the next script and use this one.
Image Rollover Example:
We define two functions, “move_in” and “move_out”. Inside those we set the parameters img_name (image name) and img_src (image source) to be able later to identify the image and its rollover.
Next we have to give our image a name (name=”image1″) in order to be able a apply an rollover to it. To complete the rollover we use onMouseOver, to call the function “move_in”, which includes the source for the rollover image, and onMouseOut, to call the function “move_out”, which includes the information for the initial image and kind of resets the situation, when you move your mouse away from the image.
