can html be used to link/trigger slaves

I want to create a nav menu in html with repective colour states for example that once moused over triggers a graphic to appear:

link - grey
hover - pink
visited - grey

Is it possible while having these states applied to the html, to then also incorporate a slave(s) to this html?

intended result:-

The text ‘html’ is normally grey, once hovered over it becomes pink, however this then also triggers a slave group to reveal the linked graphic file! Which if possible I would like to set to sticky, until another tab in the nav menu is moused over - carrying out the same function once again and some on!

Does the extension of the graphic affect this what so ever .gif/.jpeg/html/.png etc?

Altering the ‘type’ in the input/output setting of the inspector p" does alter it and give multiple options??

I know it friday…

Hi

As far as the colours go of course that is no problem - triggering a slave I am not sure about.

I suspect that it can be done using an Observer which is part of Protaculous etc. - Walter is the expert here.

There may be other methods too. Including using graphics with a CSS menu.

As far as the grahic extension goes that is irrelevant (as is the “type” in the inspector) - it can be done with any graphic type.

Is there any particular reason you don’t want to use ‘traditional’ rollovers?

Hopefully Walt or a guru alike may be able to shed some light on this? Even the Big E in southern Cal!

Thanks Dave!

Personally it will look better and I always like to exceed expectations - push the boundaries - my philisophy is nothing is impossible.

There is a text rollover action that is part of the regular rollover
suite. Click inside an HTML box or table cell so you have a flashing
text cursor, then choose Insert / Action / Rollover. You add the
rollover text using the Actions palette. If you have set up your CSS
rollover styles for the element or the document, they will apply to
the Action-generated text.

Once you do this, you have access to the entire functionality of the
regular graphic rollover, in that you can trigger slave elements and
whatnot without typing any code.

Good man Walt!

Works perfect. I was trying to use the standard rollover not the text rollover!

Of course! (sound of palm slapping forehead) The simplest ways are the best.

Why did I not remember the obvious?

I blame Walter - he gets you thinking about doing things in different ways. …How would Walter do it?
