Lesson 8. Creating Rollovers > About naming rollovers

About naming rollovers

Rollovers require two or three similar images, which appear in the same spot on the page. The first image (named Normal in the Rollover Inspector) is the normal appearance of the rollover—the way it appears when the mouse pointer is somewhere else on the page in a browser. The second image (named Over in the Rollover Inspector) is a different version of the image (for example, a highlighted appearance), which appears when the user's mouse pointer is on top of the rollover. The third image (named Down in the Rollover Inspector) appears when the user clicks on the rollover.

In GoLive you can add rollovers in two ways. You can use the Smart Rollover icon from the Smart set of the Objects palette, or you can add an image placeholder from the Basic set of the Objects palette and set rollover properties in the Rollover tab of the Image Inspector. Either way, you can use the Detect Rollover Images feature to automatically assign images to rollovers, which saves time and ensures consistency. (This feature is on by default.)
