Hello,

In the link I listed there is a black swatch rectangle. I am trying to use only CSS and XHTML to display a larger image when the mouse rolls over the swatch image. The swatch image you can see is 225px, and I want to also let the user see a larger image either with a popup or with a rollover, but I can't use javascript. Or if you have another idea that would be cool too.

Thanks!

<style type="text/css">
 

/*Credits: Dynamic Drive CSS Library */

/*URL: http://www.dynamicdrive.com/style/ */
 

.thumbnail{

position: relative;

z-index: 0;

}
 

.thumbnail:hover{

background-color: transparent;

z-index: 50;

}
 

.thumbnail span{ /*CSS for enlarged image*/

position: absolute;

background-color: white;

padding: 5px;

left: -1000px;

border: 1px solid black;

visibility: hidden;

color: black;

text-decoration: none;

}
 

.thumbnail span img{ /*CSS for enlarged image*/

border-width: 0;

padding: 2px;

}
 

.thumbnail:hover span{ /*CSS for enlarged image on hover*/

visibility: visible;

top: 0;

left: 60px; /*position where enlarged image should offset horizontally */
 

}
 

</style>

<a class="thumbnail" href="http://www.weddingmountain.com/skins/Skin_1/images/V70F-s_s225.jpg"><img src="http://www.weddingmountain.com/skins/Skin_1/images/V70F-s_s225.jpg" width="100px" height="66px" border="0" /><span><img src="http://www.weddingmountain.com/skins/Skin_1/images/V70F-s.jpg" /><br />Simply beautiful.</span></a>

Did you change the HTML to use the CSS?

I'm using a shopping cart that supports CSS (aspdotnetstorefront). I don't think it supports your code. We aren't going to use a popup. Thank you for helping me out.

Good link though!

Thanks again,

Bob

I'm sure this is long since closed and gone, but I was able to get the code at the link working in AspDotNetStorefront.  Brilliant!  Thanks, Wod!
