Problem with JavaScript mouse over element and text

  • # March 10, 2012 at 9:33 am

    Hello everyone!
    I’m new here and I have a problem with JavaScript, would be very grateful if someone here can help me.

    Basically i have found some code and modified it to suit my need,
    i think on this website somewhere. It is working well as I need, It shows a rounded rectangle filled with black color when hovered over an image. But when hovering I want it to show some text inside the rectangle.

    Any one can help me, please?

    Thanks in advance.

    The message displayed here is in the image tag
    also i centered text and set line-height to be the same as the height

    Sorry, I got one more slight problem.
    I tried to insert this code into my website but it doesn’t work the same way it works on

    I’m just confused with what goes where. I have the CSS code in my css style sheet- works ok.
    And javascript, I tried putting it in the HTML, head but no results, tried attaching to the html as a separate js file- still the same.

    Would be really grateful for any help.

    I normally include CSS and JS libraries in the head section and the functions just before the end of the body, hope this helps

    Thanks for the reply. I’m just not familiar with JS Libraries, where can i get them from?

    jQuery is a library, can’t get link on my phone but google it and itll be the first thing you find, you need it for this to work
