    2 Questions about Image Maping

    I'm just using a standard image map HTML code for an operations guide for new hires to learn a system were developing so I'd like to keep it as simple as possible. I've tried a few different ways others have accomplished what I'm looking for, but I was unable to get the results I wanted.

    I'd like to produce a better more readable tooltip (title) on mouseover of area's within an image map.

    I'd also like to highlight and place a border around areas on mouseover with href in the image map and not areas without href.

    Here's an example of one of the image maps.

    <img src="./images/SystemGUI.png" usemap="#SystemGUI"><map name="SystemGUI">
    <area name="Stop" shape="rect" coords="20,253,102,333" title="Stop Command">
    <area name="Go" shape="rect" coords="17,339,101,369" title="Start Command">
    <area name="Server Status" shape="rect" coords="9,390,108,413" title="Status of 192.168.68.2">
    <area name="In" shape="rect" coords="555,328,617,348" title="Cable In">
    <area name="Out" shape="rect" coords="556,347,617,368" title="Cable Out">
    <area name="Close" shape="rect" coords="291,392,366,415" href="./index.html" title="Close GUI">
    <area name="Initiate System" shape="rect" coords="21,217,101,243" href="./initiate.html" title="Begin Operation">
    <area name="Close" shape="rect" coords="632,160,657,185" href="./index.html" title="Exit GUI">
    </map>

    Thank you very much!

    This may be of help:

    Alternatively, I posted something similar on this forum a couple months ago. Here it is adapted to your map. No borders on the areas, but the 'titles' pop in a more elegant display. Play with the CSS to your heart's content to fit your situation.

    HTML Code:
    <!doctype html>
    <html lang="en">
    <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>System GUI</title>
    <style>
    	.msgBox{
    		position:fixed;
    		min-width:120px;
    		margin:15% auto auto 45%;
    		z-index:10;
    		border-radius:5px;
    		border:1px solid #F5F5F5;
    		background-color:#DDD;
    		box-shadow:1px 1px 5px #999;
    		overflow:hidden;
    		display:none;
    	}
    	.msgBox ul, .msgBox li{
    		list-style:none;
    		padding:0;
    		margin:0;
    		border:0;
    	}
    	.msgBox .title{
    		border-bottom:#AAA solid 1px;
    		padding:5px;
    		background-color:#CCC;
    		font-family:Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;
    		font-weight:bold;
    		font-size:0.8em;
    	}
    	.msgBox .msgContent{
    		border-top:#F5F5F5 solid 1px;
    		padding:5px;
    		font-family:Times, "Times New Roman", serif;
    		font-size:0.75em;
    	}
    		
    </style>
    <script>
    	function display(mb,h,m,c,e){
    		mb.style.display='block';
    		h.innerHTML = c;
    		m.innerHTML = e;
    	}
    
    	function hide(mb){
    		mb.style.display='none';
    	}
    </script>
    </head>
    <body>
    
    <div id="msg" class="msgBox">
        <ul>
            <li id="heading" class="title"></li>
            <li id="message" class="msgContent"></li>
        </ul>
    </div>
    
    <img src="./images/SystemGUI.png" alt="System GUI" usemap="#SystemGUI">
    <map name="SystemGUI">
    	<area alt="Stop" shape="rect" coords="20,253,102,333" href="./index.html" onmouseover="display(msg,heading,message,'Stop Command','short explanation')" onmouseout="hide(msg)">

    	<area alt="Exit GUI" shape="rect" coords="632,160,657,185" href="./index.html" onmouseover="display(msg,heading,message,'Exit GUI','short explanation')" onmouseout="hide(msg)">
    </map>
    </body>
    </html>
