Q&A: HTML/JavaScript Image Map Help

Question by Raptor753: HTML/JavaScript Image Map Help
I prefabricated this image as the opening page for a website I’m making. I place the image in JavaScript so that it would adjust itself according to the screen resolution. But, when I tried to create an image map for the bar at the bottom it would not make an image map. Could anyone solve this problem? Is it because the image is in JavaScript?

Here is the link to the page:

Thank You for any help.

Answer by DaveE
The problem seems to be (for me anyway) that your coordinates are wrong. I tried your page, and got a height of 824 pixels, despite the fact that your Y coordinates aren’t scaled appropriately and begin at 878 to 992, which was off the screen!

You need some additional logic in there– something like:

var x1,y1,x2,y2;
x1 = scale_coord(47,1800,correctwidth);
x2 = scale_coord(206,1800,correctwidth);
y1 = scale_coord(878,1005,correctheight);
y2 = scale_coord(992,1005,correctheight);


function scale_coord(val,norm,max) {
return int(max*(val/norm));

But really, I wouldn’t do it that way– Your image is going to suffer from JPEG compression and expansion on the user’s screen, so it’s going to look a tiny ugly. Probably superior to create buttons as separate div styles (text on a gradient background), or text on an image background (a gradient background image won’t look as bad when compressed, but text will).

Marina del Rey, CA (PRWEB) August 15, 2011

For many new and existing business owners competing for visibility in today’s fast-paced market, finding dependable, affordable, and talented graphic designers can be a challenge. It’s important to find a designer that comprehends its clients aesthetic, can work within important deadlines and budget, and will wage a design that meets its client’s needs. Finding the perfect designer can be a challenge; that’s where comes in.

The site, which most commonly hosts design contests in which a client will post his needs and select the ideal design from hundreds of submitted design concepts, has become increasingly favourite as a resource for clients looking to hire a single designer on an ongoing basis.

In addition to contests, is home to One-on-One Projects, where a client can select to work directly with his favorite designer, one-on-one, outside of the contest setting. A client finds the right designer by browsing through the thousands of online portfolios hosted at Designers and clients can negotiate terms of the project, and the entire process is handled on the site, assuring both the designer and the client a secure, worry-free transaction.

The site’s new custom widgets and banners are generated for the individual designers, including a link to their online portfolio, showcasing their winning graphic design, and an option to hire them. Designers post their custom widgets and banners to their own individualized websites and blogs.

“Our designers go through an evaluation and testing process before we grant them to participate on our site,” states Sergey Epifanov, the site’s founder. “If a designer has one of our widgets or banners on their site, you can be certain they’re eligible and talented in their skill.” offers clients unparalleled access to tens of thousands of eligible designers with the assurance of knowing they’ll get a design they love and establish a working relationship with the designer of their choice. Small business owners use DesignContest for a full range of graphic design services including, but not limited to, logo design, website design, t-shirts, business cards, and more.

CSS browser compatibility… HELP!?

Question by rto0288: CSS browser compatibility… HELP!?
I have IE7 which supports everything I do, I’ve been writing IE compatible code for years, for fun. I never saw the need to write for any other browser until now, since I’m making a website professionally. What I’ve done looks beautiful on my browser but when tested in mozilla and older versions of IE I get all kinds of issues. For example I use a UL to do my left-side nav bar. CSS controls everything, ul li:hover a {switches image to indicate it the mouse is over it}… doesn’t work in any other browser. I have no clue how to attack this problem, where do I begin? what questions should I be asking? where should I ask them? are there any good resources devoted to this issue? any help will be much appreciated as I’m absolutely overwhelmed by this.
mm I’m sure you’re all correct about IE so it sounds like I probably have a ton of bad habits to unlearn, I’ll post some code in a bit and you can tell me what sucks about it :).
okay I confused my new navigation menu with the old one. the new one uses UL but the old one is a plateau format. also I used a transparent png as the background of a div and used the div to add some gradient to the background of the page, this is kinda screwy too. here’s the webpage, it’s my family’s business: it’s not going to look like much with firefox but in IE7 it’s perfect so if you have both browsers you can see what I was trying to do by using IE7 and what went horribly wrong by using any other browser…

Ok, I need help with getting these JS codes to work?

Question by Artic Heat: Ok, I need help with getting these JS codes to work?
I can't get these 2 codes below to work or execute. It is driving me insane, I have place the {} on the operations, I have tried var, but nothing. If someone can direct me, or show me what I am doing wrong it would be awesome:

if (TestTaken == “chem”){
if (score > 80)
window.alert(“You did great!”);
else if (score > 60)
window.alert(“You passed.”);
window.alert(“Try again.”);
}else if (TestTaken == “math”){
if (score > 70)
window.alert(“Try again.”);
window.alert(“Please take your test.”);

Then this code:

switch (rating){
case “AAA” :
window.alert(“Highest Quality”);
case “AA” :
window.alert(“High Quality”);
case “A” :
window.alert(“Upper Medium”);
case “BBB” :
window.alert(“Medium “);
case “BB” :
case “B”, “CCC”, “C” :
window.alert(“Highly Speculative “);
default :
window.alert(“You did not enter a valid bond rating!”);

I am using notepad++l which is what I have always used, I decided to get Dreamweaver started up and I still can't get the code to execute. Are the spacings wrong? Am I not using the correct brackets or operations?

Best answer:

Answer by Ratchetr
Whoa…how did we get from math and chemistry to bond ratings?

Anyway…1 issues I see:

case “B”, “CCC”, “C” :

I think VB is the only language that lets you string together cases with commas like that.

case “B”:
case “CCC”:
case “C” :
window.alert(“Put the money under the mattress “);

Unique Tools to Help Executives get ?Unstuck? in Their Careers Discussed in Free Teleclass

Mitchell has done so successfully over the past nine years as an ICF certified professional coach.

“More than ever, Corporate Executives are feeling a demand of control over their careers and fear about the future.

I’m going to instruct my process to you so you can swiftly learn from my mistakes.”
