Tooltip for Hedy?
September 25, 2008 05:03PM
Hi Everyone!

I have been struggling like crazy with the Java scripting section from our master skill book!

The exercises have been ok...providing I follow then step by step...however with certain aspects, NAMELY the freaking TOOL TIP script!

I have already handed assignment 2 in and managed quite well to complete it. However the only thing, I think I left out was the "Tool tip" to appear when cursor moves over Hedy!

I have taken a look at a few of the other students assignments, and Im not sure but doesn't seem like anyone has applied it either.

I get that you can create a simple HTML tip to appear for the image, namely:

<img src="blahblah.jpg" width="" height="" alt="blah!">

But I'm assuming its a Java script that is required!

Please help me with this...and if you guys know of any place on the web that could help with my "catching a grasp of" javascript, please feel free to share...

Lastly, Toby...

With the 2nd Assignment are we required to zip it and email it to you guys aswell...

Am I also able to add the Tool Tip script into my assignment...even though the due date was for today!

Kindest Regards

Oh Toby i totally forgot!

One other question I have is...

Within my Assignment 2 I have added a link to my Assignment 3 project...
This is within my folder on the Osprey server...

however when the link is clicked it doesn't go through...
Could you check for me whether my URL address is correct?

Thanks Again!

In assignment 2 is mentions: NB: Tooltips only works with Microsoft browsers not with Firefox. - i.e. the alt tag is sufficient you do not have to use JavaScript for this

Your link is

replace the ftp with http and add the /toby/

It is not a good idea to have spaces in your folder or file names - also use lowercase only
