    Hi all,

    In Dreamweaver 3, is it possible to create a rollover hotspot, where the user can rollover an image in one frame, and then the page updates in another frame. I'm not sure if I have explained myself clearly. I have managed to get this working in Dreamweaver 3, but it all works from an ordinary link tag, if anyone knows how to change this to a rollover, please could you let me know. Any answers will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks Koncise

    I wouldn't advise using frames ever, especially if you are unsure about them...but:

    Create a new document. Select "insert" - "frames" - "left".
    Save the frameset.
    Click anywhere in the left frame and save as (eg) "navframe".
    Click anywhere in the right frame and save as (eg) "content".

    Now, click in the left frame and choose "insert"-"rollover image".

    Name the link, and select the images you have for a normal and "rolled" state. Then select the "target" html file.


    After pressing ok, select the newly inserted button with your mouse, then in the "properties" inspector (ctrl f3), change the "target" to "MainFrame".

    Presto, the effect you're looking for (I think).

    Remeber - I strongly advise AGAINST using frames

    i dunno if i understood you but i'll try to help.
    Select the image you want.
    Create a link with it
    Insert an hotspot with the image.
    Create another frame (normally frame 2 for the rollover to work
    choose "behavious" from the window options.
    Choose simple rollover.
    Create an image in the frame 2 so that when you want the mouse rolls over the image of frame 1 , the image of the frame 2 appear.

    Don't forget to make the image stay in the hostspot area.
    hope this helps!

    Frames hides the real URL, so when users bookmark the page, it probably won't go to the actual page.

    Some search engines don't index frame pages properly, and say you have a frame for nav, one for main content, you click on a page from a search engine that has the main content page, you'll end up going to a page that has no nav bar.
