HTMLHelp Forums _ Markup (HTML, XHTML, XML) _ Growing image

Posted by: tharpdevenport Jan 20 2007, 03:50 AM

I spent over an hour trying to find it via Google, but basically this is what I am looking for:

You hover your mouse over an image and it grows in size (to a set limit, naturally), and when you take it off, it goes back. No image flip, it grows like you were moving it by hand closer to your eye.

It could be JavaScript or Flash. This search turns some scripts up.

None of these are quite it. They either make you press a button or something.

The one I am thinking about (which I accidently found one day, but lost), you jsut pass your mouse over it and it does it. Like for image flips (again, NOT looking for flips) where you just pass your mouse over.


I have no experience in java, so please ... no one tell me to go read a toutorial. ;-)

Isn't that the exact situation when you should read a tutorial? wink.gif

Zoom just isn't ging to be it.

And why is that all of a sudden? You aren't easy to help, you know. blink.gif

Because "Zoom", in all the example does exactly what it says: zoom. + or -

When reading this topic in my RSS reader, I immediately thought of Dan Cederholm's http://www.simplebits.com/notebook/2003/08/22/css_photo_zoom.html.
Now I'm not quite sure anymore. So it's up to you.

Sadly that isn't it either. That's just switching to a larger image.

What I want litterally grows, similar to an example someone suggested above.

I said above that that behavior can be changed. rolleyes.gif

You'll have to hurry up incase they switch it out, but if you go to TrekBBS.com and keep refreshing the page, eventually you'll get the Ask.com ad at the top. On the majority of the left side of the ad are red buttons with beveled edges that -- when you pass your mouse over -- do almost exactly what I am trying to tell you all about.


I assume you can adjust the speed and size increse.
