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?
