View Full Version : disjointed flash rollovers in DW

12-07-2005, 04:50 PM
I would like to make a disjointed rollover, so that when the mouse is over the flash object it swaps an image in another part of the page. Is this possible?

copy this into an empty page .. it includes all the functions and html.
You will have to analyse it to see what it does

function MM_preloadImages() { //v3.0
var d=document; if(d.images){ if(!d.MM_p) d.MM_p=new Array();
var i,j=d.MM_p.length,a=MM_preloadImages.arguments; for(i=0; i<a.length; i++)
if (a[i].indexOf("#")!=0){ d.MM_p[j]=new Image; d.MM_p[j++].src=a[i];}}

function MM_swapImgRestore() { //v3.0
var i,x,a=document.MM_sr; for(i=0;a&&i<a.length&&(x=a[i])&&x.oSrc;i++) x.src=x.oSrc;

function MM_findObj(n, d) { //v4.01
var p,i,x; if(!d) d=document; if((p=n.indexOf("?"))>0&&parent.frames.length) {
d=parent.frames[n.substring(p+1)].document; n=n.substring(0,p);}
if(!(x=d[n])&&d.all) x=d.all[n]; for (i=0;!x&&i<d.forms.length;i++) x=d.forms[i][n];
for(i=0;!x&&d.layers&&i<d.layers.length;i++) x=MM_findObj(n,d.layers[i].document);
if(!x && d.getElementById) x=d.getElementById(n); return x;

function MM_swapImage() { //v3.0
var i,j=0,x,a=MM_swapImage.arguments; document.MM_sr=new Array; for(i=0;i<(a.length-2);i+=3)
if ((x=MM_findObj(a[i]))!=null){document.MM_sr[j++]=x ; if(!x.oSrc) x.oSrc=x.src; x.src=a[i+2];}

<body onload="MM_preloadImages('images/04-cupra-badge2.jpg')">
<p><img src="images/04-cupra-badge.jpg" name="no1" width="200" height="282" id="no1" onmouseover="MM_swapImage('no2','','images/04-cupra-badge2.jpg',1)" onmouseout="MM_swapImgRestore()" />
<img src="images/04-cupra-badge3.jpg" name="no2" width="200" height="282" id="no2" /></p>
<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=7,0,19,0" width="100" height="100">
<param name="movie" value="flashswap.swf" />
<param name="quality" value="high" />
<embed src="flashswap.swf" quality="high" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="100" height="100"></embed>

unzip the file below and drop the images into an images directory but make sure the swf file is above the images directory (in the root)

when you run the page you should see 2 images of a car and a flash button. If you mouse over image 1 then image 2 will change. The same will happen if you mouse over the flash button which is your goal

when you create your flash button you can use the following actionscript to call javascript as..
they aint heavy....they are brothers... <_< hehe .. i crack myself up

on (rollOver) {
on (rollOut){


i hope you understand this as i have totally confused myself :blink:

I did as you said, but when I mouseover the images don't change.
I'm also confused about how to use the actionscript.
I'm sorry if I'm being dim!

Thanks alot for the help.
