I cant find any combination of layering/order/sizing that will let a
rollover made of 2 gif files and a menu table display the drop
downs. If the table is on top the rollovers dont appear, if the
button are on top the drop down dont.
Whats the table object for?
If you really need them in the table structure then yes, put them
in it. Moving something so it hovers over a table won’t put it into
Don’t do that with markup though; it is much easier than that. Just
click into the cell, paste one graphic box into there, and apply the
Rollover action to it.
Then, in the Actions palette, switch the Rollover settings display to
‘Parameters’, open the MouseOver popup menu, and choose Items.
Pick your ready-made second-state graphic, the one you want to show
when the item is rolled over.
Oh, did I forget to mention this? Yep, this technique uses the
original Freeway 1.0 method of making rollovers, referencing an
external graphic. It is important that it is the same pixel
dimensions, or it will be distorted to fit the space. Here’s a quick
way to make it:
- Select your second rollover graphic item in the Freeway page and
choose File > Export.
- Pick GIF or JPEG as the output format, remember to add “.gif” or
“.jpeg” (or “.jpg”) to the end of the file name, and save this into
your Media folder.
Select this as the ‘Item’ for the MouseOver, and Freeway will take
care of the rest.
Don’t bother trying to do this with markup items; Freeway already
provides all the features you need. However, I still am confused as
to why you’re trying to put the rollover into a hand-made table
