    text rollover expands a description

    Hello,

    I didnt really know the best way to put the topic. But let me describe what I'm looking to do and hopefully someone will know.

    Lets say I have a column of text, like:

    mysql
    bandwidth
    stats
    logs
    space
    ftp

    And the list goes on. Anyways, what I wanted to do was to make it so you could either have your mouse over one of those texts or click like a Q mark next to the text, and it would expand a small box on the screen that would basically tell what each thing is.

    I'm guessing this will be either javascript or php, but I have the faintest idea how to do it.

    Could someone please link me to a how-to or tell me how to accomplish this?

    Thanks,
    Dan

    Hi Dynamohosting,

    I would use DHTML for that. I had used a very nice script in the past, which you can find here.

    You can configure about everything. It also has nice effects for IE users. Comes with a very detailed README too.

    Hope that helps,

    regards ASchweti

    PS: I should add: On this site (link above) go to "DHTML Scripts", it's called "DHTML tip message"
