div/img over an image

Posted 25 January 2011 - 03:13 AM

Hi ,I want to have a big header with two small images inside of it , so when I click on one of those small ones it becomes the main one. The problem is i can't use javascript to do this if my header is a css background image (if you know a way i can, that would be great). So my plan was to put my header image inside of the header div, and then put another div over it in wich i would put the two smaller images. the problem is they dont overlap, i guess the solution is either to use absolute/relative positioning or a z-index , but i dont know much about either of them , and i can't get it working. to anyone who knows how to solve this, thank you in advance.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

You could use jQuery to change the CSS when you click an image if you give it an id, For example:
$("#image1").click(function () {
$("#header").css("background-image", "url(secondimage.png)");

Hope this helps

regular Javascript can also change css.

function onMouseClick(){
    var object = document.getElemenyById('objectID');
    object.style.backgroundImage = "URL(secondimage.png);";
    //in Javascript, any CSS element with a hyphen "-",
    //remove it, and capitalize the second word
