Yes this is possible. What you do is to create two versions of each image. One is the thumbnail and the other is the full size image. You then create links from the thumbnails to the larger images.
There are a variety of ways to approach this. Without knowing more it's hard to direct.
- Do you want the user to click and see a popup of the image?
- Do you want the user to click and see the image drop-down below the thumbnail?
- Do you want the user to click and see the image in a new window?
- Do you want the user to simply display the larger image as if it were another topic?
Thanks for the speedy reply.
A bit more info, I'll be outputting WebHelp from RH 8.
I don't want a popup or a new window. So, am I left with using a DHTML link.
I really just want the larger image to appear next to the thumbnail. Has the hotspot functionality changed for the good. I was always disappointed when white space was reserved for the popup image, leaving a gaping hole in the non-expanded layout.
Again, thanks very much.
If you are referring to the RoboHelp Popup method, hopefully you realize you may specify the dimensions of a Popup. You may see a small white border, but nothing hugely large or unsightly. (Unless you just WANT it that way. )
Actually, not the popup...
I don't have RH in front of me, so please excuse my lack of accurate terms. I'm talking about the DHTML feature that allows me to specify that an image should expand/contract upon a user click. In the past, when a graphic/text was marked dynamic so it rolls up/rolls back upon click, the white space required for the expand appeared even in contracted view. This could be old news (v5).
If this description doesn't suffice, I'll get the actual terminology and get post a more helpful query.
