How to create rollovers on top of an image
Having finished the "Beginning ASP.NET book" I'm preparing to move on to the next level. But in the interim I have a need for some advice. I'm taking a master's level course right now in UI/UX and thinking about putting my new ASP.NET knowledge to work right away for our semester project.
I'd like to put an image (.jpg) of an existing web page onto my web page. Then I want to create a large number of rollover 'hot spots' that will pop up a hover field that has clickable links inside. We didn't cover putting hover points over an image in the beginning book.
I'm assuming there's a recommended way to do this, but need some help to understand.
Is there a way to use an image as if it were a "wallpaper" in ASP.NET. When I say 'wallpaper', it's more than simply making it a backdrop. I would want to be able to position the image so that it can be fully seen and not under a header image at the top of the page. I only mention the idea of 'wallpaper' to denote that I want to put hotspot regions on top of the image in a variety of locations and didn't think we can put a control on a control.
Then, what would be the best control to use for creating regions that will yield popups with the clickable links inside? For this I will want to put text and links in the popup that the user can then select from.
