Hi I am trying to implement a feature in my web page similar to the one found in the bookmarks frame when viewing Adobe documents with Acrobat.
This is the feature I am trying to emulate : If you open a PDF document that has bookmarks in Adobe, and try to move your mouse over the book mark links in the bookmark frame, the columns are highlighted and you can view the entire title of that column without having to scroll.
I need to implement a similar feature in my web page. I have two frames, the left frame contains the index to the document - kind of table of contents and when the user clicks on the links in the left frame, he is taken to that particular page. The links some times span more than 100 characters in length. Ofcourse, the frames are scrollable and resizble, but to enhance the user experience, i pop up the entire string in that link as the title on mouse over the link in the left frame. However, the title just appears below the link.
My question is this: Is it possible for me to make the title that pops up on mouse over, to overlap with the link (meaning the position of the title that pops up on mouse over should be the same as the link) and show the entire link (with it spanning across the frames)?
Any suggestions in this regard is greatly appreciated.
Also, using the title to achieve this isn't the best way as the title of a link disappers after a few seconds. So, I would assume some other means of highliting should be the best way to implement this. Let me know if I can attach a document to show this feature in Adobe PDF files.
