Dynamic dropdown "formlets"

Hi,
I have a small group and we are very light on Jquery/Javascript.  Pretty decent at cloning code from another site example.

Please see the attached Word document with image examples.

We would like to click or mouseover icons (such as "email", "save", "print" and have a little (email) form drop down for the user to fillout and hit submit.  We know how to do this for one set of icons in a single entry.  But we don't know how to do this for multiple entries that each have the same set of  icons (the 2nd example in the Word Doc - our site).

If you could please point us to a site that has this code or provide the technique it would be greately appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Hi mplungjan,
Thanks for the reference.  We'll check it out.

Are you familiar with any JQuery solutions?

BTW:  Where did the JQuery forum go recently?  Was it combined with Javascript?

Thanks again,

... Oh - and do you think this tutorial will handle "multple" drop down menus repeated on the same page (like in multiple blog responses)?

If I understand your question, you want the same action/response to happen when a user mouses over the icons at the bottom as happens when they mouse over the text links on the menu in the middle (save - email - edit - share) ? Is that what you are looking for? Actually I'm not quite understanding exactly what you are wanting - could you provide a little more info on what needs to happen? On the bottom of your word doc (your site) you have two entries. Are you wanting the same drop down to happen no matter which of the same icon the mouse is over? If that's the case it will be very simple but I'll wait for your response in case I have it all backwards :)

Yes, that is correct.  A page will have multiple search results (e.g. "companies") and each search result will have the set of icons that a user can mouseover (or click) to initiate the dropdown for that entry.  The drop down has to occur on the right entry were the mouseover occured.

Thanks,
