Image & Tool Tip Scripts
demonstrates the Active Image and Tool Tip functions that I have
developed for use in my
application [save yourself a trip -- MajorCool
is a CGI interface to the Majordomo UNIX mailing
list management software].
Move the mouse back and forth over the image to watch
it change. Stay stationary for a moment to make the
Tool Tip pop up. Click to see the image change yet again,
and get another pop-up (this time without a delay).
This is accomplished with two functions (three if you count the
brain-dead Status Line update):
img(imageName,mode) -- the ubiquitous
dynamic image script
tip(tipWindow,tipText,tipDelay,tipLife,stealFocus) -- based on a Chris

have verified the Tool Tip function on Netscape 3.x
and 4.x (UNIX as well as PC). Microsoft IE4 works as
expected; IE3 support is partial, because it has no
onMouseOut event. Dumbed-down browsers such as NCSA
Mosaic blithely ignore the scripts without adverse effects.
