    Rollover with hyperlink

    Bob-Snow
      We want to find a way to have a rollover and sneak up on the result.

      You would think there would be a way to have a rollover, with the help of a hotkey or whatever, that you'd be able to execute and give you a chance to click on a hyperlink that is shown on the result of that rollover. Now if I was fast as a speeding bullet I could probably do it. You would think by now Adobe would have a way to accomplish this. Basically I want to have a rollover that would have a hyperlink appear, but I want to be able to click on that hyperlink. But obviously when I take the mouse off of that rollover the "result" disappears and I can't click on the link.

      Any suggestions or help would be appreciated.

          Why? Adobe can only give you tools to help make it easier to implement what is possible in HTML. If you're making one element active, then that's the active element. Once the mouse is off it, it's no longer the active element. Adobe doesn't write the HTML specification, so they can't give you a way to accomplish something that is outside of it.
