    Menu with image change on mouse click


    I've been looking for a script for a menu which makes the image change when you click down on it. I want it so that when you click on another image, it changes and the other image clicked beforehand is reset to the original image.

    I hope that makes sense!

    It would be appriciated if someone could point me in the right direction.

    I wrote the following code. In the body, there are two images, initally set to display A1.jpg, and B1.jpg. On mouseover/out of these images, they change to A2 and B2, respectively. On click of either of these images, they change to A3 and B3. When an image is clicked it stays set on A3 or B3. If A was clicked, and then B is clicked, the A image will reset to A1, and B will stay set as B3, until A is clicked, and so on. I hope this helps.

    <Script Language=JavaScript>

    var prevClicked = "";

    function staySet(curr){

    tmpStr = curr.toString();
    if (prevClicked != "")
    document.getElementById(prevClicked).disabled = false;
    document.getElementById(prevClicked).src = prevClicked+'1.jpg'
    document.getElementById(tmpStr).disabled = true;
    document.getElementById(tmpStr).src = tmpStr+'3.jpg';
    prevClicked = tmpStr;

    function SwapImage(curr){

    tmpStr = curr.toString();
    var swap = event.type;
    if (swap == 'mouseover'){document.getElementById(curr).src=tmpStr+'2.jpg'}
    if (swap == 'mouseout'){document.getElementById(curr).src=tmpStr+'1.jpg'}

    <a href=javascript:staySet('A')><img src='A1.jpg' id='A' onMouseover="SwapImage('A')" onMouseout="SwapImage('A')" alt='This is the hover text'></a>
    <a href=javascript:staySet('B')><img src='B1.jpg' id='B' onMouseover="SwapImage('B')" onMouseout="SwapImage('B')" alt='This is the hover text'></a>

    Yeh! Nice. Just what I was looking for too. Thanks.

    And by changing
    document.getElementById(tmpStr).src = tmpStr+'3.jpg';
    document.getElementById(tmpStr).src = tmpStr+'2.jpg';
    the mouseclicked image stays the same as the mouseover image.

    Can the code be changed so that the images can be stored in a different directory, separate from the html file?

    Errr, maybe it's not that nice.
    The actual images are not preloading, right? They are downloaded only when the "1" version of each button is given a "mouseover".

    So it is not good for slow interent connections or large images.

    This is exactly what I needed as well, thank you.
