argilla: Tipmage

Tipmage is a javascript class aimed at creating and managing tooltips (or "notes") over images.

Tipmage makes it possible to mark rectangular portions of an image and attach a description to each one of them. The description will be shown as a tooltip when the mouse is over the right section of the image.

The class can work in two ways: in normal mode it just shows the tooltips, while in edit mode it also allows the user to edit them.

Tipmage supports the use of special callback functions to perform operations related to the editing of a tooltip (for example AJaX calls to access a database).

An external CSS stylesheet allows to customize the appearance of the user interface.

Should work on: Internet Explorer 5.5+, Firefox 1.0+, Safari 2.0+, Opera 7.6+
