    I'm using dreamweaver mx 2004 on a mac. I'd like to be able to click on or roll over thumbnails and have them appear as full-sized images in a designated area on the same page. I've seen this feature on many sites so i know it can be done. Any suggestions?

    You can do this with a Behavior. For your thumbnail, set Events to "(onMouseOver)" and set Actions to "Open Browser Window."

    Oops... Wait, you said you wanted the image to open on the same page. "Open Browser Window" will, of course, open a new window, like a popup. I'm not sure about doing it on the same page, but there must be an Action for that, too.

    I have something like that on my website. Use the menu: Miscellany > Me, Me, Me, and then put your cursor on the picture.

    It is a behavior. I have the specific commands at home. PM me if you are interested.

    It is a rollover behavoir. What you have to do is name the target image and then set the behavoir properties of the thumbnail to swap the image in the target cell. It does it using the image name. I do it my site and it is really no big deal. Dreamweaver comes with some very nice tutorials out of the box and if I remember correctly there is one for this. Good luck.

    Regards,
    Bill
