  • web design question

    I'm trying to learn more about web design and was wondering if anyone knew what it's called when you mouseover something a new box comes up with additional info in it. Like it does when you mouseover a topic here, it brings up the first part of the message.

    funny enough it is called mouseover.

    Text popup is another name. This is not the same as popups, which we have all come to hate.

    Here is a link for you to try.

        You might want to also look into Cascading Style Sheets.
        The mouseover would be the event that would trigger the object, and the CSS would be the object.

          First off how thick is the board you cut?
          When I want something to stand out I use backer-boards 1/8 thick to get the depth.
          that means you would have to cut the big cutting into pieces to put the spacer behind.
          for instance the cloud bottom right which his hand is on I would put maybe...

          I am stunned at the fact it wasn't rotted or termite destroyed. That must've been one blessed lady. Thank you for what you all are doing!

          Pretty boards. Our Walmart didn't have any when I went. Thank you for sharing though.

          I would have to agree that I've not personally made many designs from the magazine, as I have progressed to making most of my own designs. However, I do enjoy some of the reviews and other articles---as well as checking out techniques of others. I debated as well, but decided to renew. Now I just...
