Overlib.js is Sweet

Overlib.js is a free Javascript file that can give you seemingly endless possible configurations for rollover pop-ups. Its use is becoming more prominent all over the Internet, even if you don’t realize it. I remember when I first noticed it being used (though at that time I didn’t know what it was) and thought it was cool that rolling over an image would bring up a large version of the thumbnail image to look at. Cool.

These days it’s use is being stretched from just large images to entire layers filled with content from a database. I only know that it can be used for this because one of our own programmers, Reggie, has used this to its full extent on a jewelry website. After filling me in on a snippet of how he was able to do the cool things he did, I now get to venture into Overlib experimentation to get it to do what I need it to do.

We get to break the mold with conventional code uses and make truly unique applications because at DDA we do custom programming. We aren’t limited to any specific language either. Coldfusion, PHP, Actionscript, and Javascript are our main tools in our advanced programming arsenal. Any web application you need, we can do. Just give us a call.
