Graphic on Ajax Natpage used to trigger an event

We would like to use a graphic (some kind of image) on an ajax page, so when clicked on it, either an event is triggered, or alternatively a hyperlink is executed. Any ideas on how to do this?

You do not simply mean the ICON control, do you? But rather something like a clickable map?

Yes something like a clikable map

Hi Derek,

If you simply have 1 image and everywhere the user clicks, the same method should be called: A simple icon supports this. …as already mentioned by Thomas.

If you would like to have an image, which actually consists of several areas and depending on clicks into different areas, different methods should be called: Application Designer supports controls for absolute positioning. You might want to have a look at the following example:


This example does not exactly show the clicking into different areas, but it shows you, how to build an image with several different pieces. The ABSICON control (like the ICON control) supports a method property. This method is called when the user clicks on the (ABS)ICON.

However ABS* controls also have disadvantages: They are very specific controls and layout design is more difficult. You have to specify all the x, y, z coordinates.

Best Regards,
