I’ve inherited a job that sounds simple but I need some advice. Here’s the layout - I have a map of the US with rollover buttons in a few of the states. When you rollover the buttons (they are small black dots) the name of the place appears to the right and if clicked, it takes you to a detail page (not dynamic). Pretty straight forward right?
Here’s what I’ve been asked to do - when someone rolls over a button (the small black dot), I need to make a larger graphic of the particular state selected fade in or grow and expand over top of the original state. In the larger graphic that appears, I need to create buttons/links to the detail page. If the end user decides to try another state, I need for it disappear once they roll off.
The reason - more buttons (the small black dots) will be added and will start to crowd the smaller state images and I need to offer a way to kinda zoom in and bring the info for each state into a larger more readable view.
To get a better idea, here’s a look at the web page:
Any feedback, advice, tutorials would be much appreciated.
