I'm not sure where to post this question, but it involves
images and was wondering if Fw is the place to start.
I want to create a retro car radio navigation for a web site.
Old push-button radios usually had an indicator that travelled
behind the numbers on the dial when you turned the tuner knob.
Then, you could set a button to go to a specific station on the
dial. My web site navigation uses an image of the radio on an old
dashboard. When the buttons are clicked, the click state shows the
button pushed in and the indicator shows above the pushed button on
the dial when the user is sent to that web page. The button remains
in its "pushed" state until another button is pushed, at which
click the previous button returns to its "out" state and the second
button clicked goes to the new page and shows its "pushed" state.
And so on.
I supposed there are multiple options to do this, but I'd
but I used to use ImageReady to do this and ImageReady would create
the script in the generated html. Will Fw do this? Or is there some
Yes, Fireworks will make menu bars, but there is a better
way. It is much better to use Dreamweaver or another Web
development tool, instead of a graphics application. Fireworks HTML
is recommended for mockups and prototypes. The code it produces is
fragile, very ugly and does not lend itself to future maintenance.
Use Fireworks to create your images, then use Dreamweaver or
similar to put together a robust and maintainable navigation menu.
