hello,

I am making a map to put on a website, i have used image map to make certain areas clickable. Theses areas represnet different stores for a company. Currently , they link to a page for that particular store.

I have seen on some maps.. when you click on the area it bring up a small popup saying what it is or where it is.


Do I use flash for that? or is that javascript?

thanks

you can use both, but preferable flash.

There are several ways to accomplish this in flash,
i'd choose to 'attachMovie' to the stage; which grabs a pre-made movieclip from the libary and places it at a specified position and level.

an other alternative is to 'loadMovie' different elements into a blank movieclip that is placed then on a stage.

the loadMovie may decrease the over-all size of the file, but i'm not much an expert on this anyhow.

hope this helps.
Danny
