Flash Status Bar

When you want a more interesting status bar instead of using the browser's bar, try out this tool. Note that the status bar only appears in Internet Explorer browsers, and will have no effect within Netscape.

Here is an example of how it works (Mouse Over Me!).

After you've installed the generated code, in order to trigger the bar, you'll need to surround an area with an <a> tag which contains onMouseover and onMouseout properties. Here's an example:

onMouseover="EnterContent('Bar Content')" onMouseout="EnterContent('')"

The above is meant to be entered into already-existing <a> tags. If you want to assign a tooltip to an area that isn't a link, you'll have to add the entire tag:

<a href="javascript:void(0)" onMouseover="EnterContent('Bar Content')" onMouseout="EnterContent('')">Status Note</a>

The highlighted areas hold the content of the bar. You may simply copy the above examples and replace the content area with your own.
