Working with Style filters and image rollover

Below I have referenced 2 examples.  The first dsiplays a slightly transparent image and then shows the full color image on mouseover.  I am trying to use the gray filter so that the image is gray and then displays full color on mouseover.  

The javascript references opacity which is why I think the gray filter is not working.  How can I incorporate the gray filter?


<script language="JavaScript1.2">
function makevisible(cur,which){
strength=(which==0)? 1 : 0.2

if (cur.style.MozOpacity)
cur.style.MozOpacity=strength
else if (cur.filters)
cur.filters.alpha.opacity=strength*100
}
</script>

<a href="#"><img width=55 style="filter:alpha(opacity=20);-moz-opacity:0.2" onMouseover="makevisible(this,0)" onMouseout="makevisible(this,1)" src="image.jpg"></a>


******************************

<a href="#"><img width=55 style="FILTER: Gray" onMouseover="makevisible(this,0)" onMouseout="makevisible(this,1)" src="image.jpg"></a>

I *think* that this is what ur after:

<script language="JavaScript1.2">
function makevisible(cur,which){
strength=(which==0)? 1 : 0.2

if ( cur.style.filter )
{
if ( cur.style.filter == 'Gray' )
{
   cur.style.filter = ''
}
else
{
   cur.filters.alpha.opacity=strength*100
}
}
}

</script>

<a href="#"><img width=55 style="filter:alpha(opacity=20);-moz-opacity:0.2" onMouseover="makevisible(this,0)" onMouseout="makevisible(this,1)" src="vipAccess.gif"></a>


******************************

<a href="#"><img width=55 style="filter: Gray" onMouseover="makevisible(this,0)" onMouseout="makevisible(this,1)" src="vipAccess.gif"></a>

Hi

The best way is to make this style in the head section:

<style type="text/css">

.gray {filter:gray;}

</style>

Then, have the on onmouseover, and onmouseout:

onmouseover="makevisible(this,0);this.className='gray';" onmouseout="makevisible(this,1);this.className='';"

Finally, I recommend you use onmouseover and onmouseout all lowercase. Just a minor points, but it'll validate better for xhtml.

Zyloch

This will reset the Gray ( in order to remove Gray, it actually removes the filter!) :

<script language="JavaScript1.2">
function makevisible(cur,which){
strength=(which==0)? 1 : 0.2

if ( cur.style.filter )
{
   if ( cur.style.filter == 'Gray' )
   {
      cur.style.filter = ''
   }
   else
   {
      cur.filters.alpha.opacity=strength*100
   }
}

}

function addFilter(cur)
{
   cur.style.filter = 'Gray'
}

</script>

<a href="#"><img width=55 style="filter:alpha(opacity=20);-moz-opacity:0.2" onMouseover="makevisible(this,0)" onMouseout="makevisible(this,1)" src="vipAccess.gif"></a>

<a href="#"><img width=55 style="filter: Gray" onMouseover="makevisible(this,0)" onMouseout="addFilter(this)" src="vipAccess.gif"></a>
