Image Maps in EPF [message #31988] Wed, 02 May 2007 13:05 Go to next message

Folks,

How do you/what tool do you use to add image maps on images that you embed
into EPF (to create areas on images with hyperlinks)?
I can create an image and overlay an image map using other popular HTML
editing tools and import the <map> tag in, but how can I easily associate
each hotspot area with links within EPF itself, e.g., link to a Role.

Thanks in advance.

When you draw the image map hotspots in your html editor and the tool
prompts you for the target URL, just type a "dummy" string that reminds you
later which method or process element you want to link to. Once, you
finished the map copy the html. Go to the EPFC form and switch the field's
rich text editor into the HTML tab. Paste the html. Go back to the rich text
tab and start dragging into the editor below the image all the elements that
your map shall link to. Switch back to html and paste the string of the new
links href values into the respective href references in the image map above
replacing your "dummy" strings.

Note, that the href format has changed in EPF Composer 1.2. If you migrate
you need to manually fix the hrefs for the image maps. All other links that
contain a class and guid attribute will be automatically updated by EPF
Composer.

What Peter explained is what we did for some OpenUP graphics that have image
maps (e.g. the round table on front page).

To fix the problem related to difference in formats mentioned, in case you
use EPF Composer (previous than 1.2, and then upgrade to 1.2) you want to
remove the GUIDs from those hyperlinks in the image map, as the tool today
(as available in M2) does not migrate those links correctly. Future builds
are expected to fix that. After removing the GUIDs, just open the library in
1.2.
