Hi reader,
Today i have experienced something new with images.
I created HTML page contains image. This image was mapped by using <MAP tag.

You can’t find these areas when are browsing this page.. Because these areas (dimensions) are hidden and have nothing to be identified.

So, I was looking for way to identify these areas with something till i had an idea of adding borders or creating a floating DIV with 0.3 opacity to tell the visitor that you are pointing to this area.

I started applying this by adding actions (onmouseover) on the Map area and applying a javascript function to put a DIV over the image with area’s dimensions.
This DIV is transparent and has a border of 2px with black color.

To view the demo of this image Map, Please click here.

I have used this code

// Javascript Code:
function hovers(isover, y,x,w,h,m){
// showing div in position
$("#odiv").css({top:x+'px', left:y+'px', width:w+'px',height:h+'px',opacity:1}).show().click(function (){
window.open(m,"Jordan Map");
} else {
// hiding this div.

/* CSS code */
border:#000 solid 2px;

// HTML Code
<div align="center"><div id="imgContainer"><div id="odiv" onmouseout="hovers(false)"></div><img src="jordanmap.jpeg" width="800" height="991" border="0" usemap="#Map" /></div>
&nbsp <map name="Map" id="Map">
   <area shape="rect" coords="132,227,297,460" href="map1.jpg" target="_blank" alt="North of Jordan" onmouseover="hovers(true, 132,227,165,233,'map1.jpg')" />
   <area shape="rect" coords="120,416,285,628" href="map2.jpg" target="_blank" alt="Middle of Jordan" onmouseover="hovers(true, 120,416,165,212,'map2.jpg')" />
   <area shape="rect" coords="111,574,270,795" href="map3.jpg" target="_blank" alt="Middle of Jordan" onmouseover="hovers(true, 111,574,159,221,'map3.jpg')" />
   <area shape="rect" coords="50,685,200,888" href="map4.jpg" target="_blank" alt="South of Jordan" onmouseover="hovers(true, 50,685,150,203,'map4.jpg')" />
