Hi this is a simple question I just do not know the JS syntax.  I want a mouseover image to activate a mouseover on another element.

As an example visit http://www.greenteadesign.com/test.html

Now look at the mouseover on the thumbnail in the left panel.  It currently borders the thumb in green as well as showing a transparent gif on the main image (right panel).

What I want to do is have the mouseover on the transparent gif (right panel), border the corresponding thumbnail (left panel)

Here is the JS for the thumbnails:

<script language="JavaScript1.2">
/*
Highlight Image Script II-
© Dynamic Drive (www.dynamicdrive.com)
For full source code, usage terms, and 100's more DHTML scripts, visit http://dynamicdrive.com
*/
     
function borderit(which,color){
//if IE 4+ or NS 6+
if (document.all||document.getElementById){
which.style.borderColor=color
}
}
</script>

And here is the code on the thumb referencing the JS for the thumbnail:

<a href="stereostep.html" class="small" onMouseOut="toggle('item1')" onmouseover="toggle('item1')"><img src="images/steptansu/stereostep-2tone-thumb.jpg" width=65 height=55 alt="" border=0 class="borderimage" onMouseover="borderit(this,'#647F5B')" onMouseout="borderit(this,'white')"><br></a>

Finally here is the code for one of the transparent gifs:

<div id="Stepper" style="position:absolute; width:165px; height:167px; z-index:9; left: 524px; top: 296px" onMouseOver="toggle('item1')" onMouseOut="toggle('item1')"><a href="#"><img src="spacer.gif" width="165" height="167" border="0"></a></div>

Thanks in advance,
Hayden

Not a problem, we still need to get your positioning correct first

Thanks Devic, it's sweet and simple!  Ok now what if I want to change a css hover?

For example http://www.greenteadesign.com/test2.html

The green border with the text in it saying stereo step I want to be hovered as well when you mouseover the transparenet gif.

The css for that is:

A.roomsthumbs {
display: block;
width: 65px;
height: 38px;
text-align: center;
text-decoration: none;
font-family: Verdana;
font-size: 9px;
color: #647F5B;
border: solid 1px #647F5B;
padding-top: 6px;
}
            
A.roomsthumbs:hover {
color: #ffffff;
border: solid 1px #647F5B;
background-color: #647F5B;
text-decoration: none;
}

It works like a charm, though admittedly I don't understand the code =)

By the way Devic, and useful books/tuts out there that could help me understand this?

Cheers,
Hayden

Devic in the test you showed me there is an underline for the text within the green boxes.  This is because a:hover is no longer overrided.  How do I get rid of the underline without changing a:hover?

I just put another a:hover on the actual page instead of the stylesheet.  Works fine.  If theres a better way let me know.

Cheers.
