Experts,
I'm new to dreamweaver 8 and I am trying to connect two pictures with a button.  Picture 1 is a jpeg of a screen that has a button.  I would like to use dreamweaver to put a "dreamweaver button" over the button on picture 1 so that when it is clicked, the user goes to picture 2.  Is it possible yo make a "button click area" or can I only use underlined text?

Thanks

I guess you can try this:

<style type="text/css">
.btnUnderLine {
      text-decoration: underline;
}
</style>

then:

<input type="submit" name="Submit" value="Submit" class="btnUnderLine">

You may also try like this:

<a href="picture2.jpg"><img src="picture1.jpg" width="75" height="50" border="0"></a>

or

<input name="Submit" type="button" id="Submit" value="Submit" onClick="window.location.hrer='picture2.jpg'">



if this is not what you want, you may post your scripts here and indicate what you intend to do next.

Image maps are not Dreamweaver specific, they've been around since the early days of HTML.

Basically, you can designate areas of the image (known as hotspots) that are clickable links.  Dreamweaver allows for this automatically in the Properties Panel.

1) Select the image in Design View by clicking on it.

2) Make sure the Properties Panel is fully expanded

3) In the lower half of the Properties Panel, there are three buttons with blue shaded shapes.  Those are the hotspot tools.  Select one of them (for a button, I suggest rectangle) and then draw on your image a rectangular region that covers the button.

4) After drawing the region, the Properties Panel will change to the Hotspot and ask you for the destination link.  Just fill it in and you're done.

Visual version of the above:
