Hi guys
I need a javascript or CSS script that would show a large image when you mouseover a thumbnail
The large image should pop up in the same location where the thumnail is
Your help is appreciated.

Hi Dory,

A Quick look on google (The First Result) :P  Gave me this:

http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex4/thumbnail2.htm

is this similar to what you are looking for or are you after something different?

Sorry to ask, but Image popping up in the same window is a little confusing.. Could mean it replaces the smaller image, appears next to it or even pops into a black/grey overlay box similar to some flash sites and photo galleries.

Something like

<script type="text/javascript">
function show(img) {
  document.getElementById('bigImg').src=img;
  document.getElementById('imgSpan').style.display="";
}
function hide() {
  document.getElementById('imgspan').style.display="none";
}
</script>
<a href="images/image1.jpg" onmouseover="show(this.href)"
onmouseout="hide()" onclick="return false"><img src="images/image1_th.jpg" border="0" /></a>
<a href="images/image2.jpg" onmouseover="show(this.href)"
onmouseout="hide()" onclick="return false"><img src="images/image2_th.jpg" border="0" /></a>
<span style="display:none" id="imgSpan"><img id="bigImg" src="images/image1.jpg" /></span>

The average business loses $13.5M per year to ineffective training (per 1,000 employees). Keep ahead of the competition and combine in-person quality with online cost and flexibility by training with Linux Academy.

Hi Guys
reviewing the 3 comments above I think that Jquery maybe the way to go as demostrated
logudotcom: link (above).
Assuming I get the Jquery JS lib (Which I am not too familiar with) can someone provide me wi th a script  that would replace a thumbnail with a larger image on mouseover using the location of the thumbnail as shown by logudotcom:
Thank you
Dory
