    Editable diagrams?

    n | d | a
      Trying to create an image object that users can enter dimensions for. So, for example, let's say I build dog houses and I want to allow users to supply the measurement for the length and width so they can order a custom size. To minimize user input error I'd like the user to be able to input the measurements directly on the diagram image, in the correct location, rather than trying to match "Side A" to a input field labeled "Side A".

      The initial solution I came up with is to just slice up the image so as to allow a space for a small text input field in each of the "dimensions". From a usability perspective this would seem to be a simple way to allow this type of interaction. From a development point of view it seems like a real PIA.

      There must be a better way to do this. Flash? Flex?

      Any thoughts?
