Simple & Flexible XML Client Map
The Simple & Flexible XML Client Map is an easy to use file that let’s you place an unlimited amount of dots on a world map representing clients or anything else. The dots can be any size and any color and be placed anywhere, all controlled easy by XML. Tooltips can be on or off. The map and its contents scale up and down to fit the space provided as you place it in an HTML page. It will link out to a page you specify in the XML when you click on a client dot – this can also be disabled. The original size is 700×350.
The file is XML driven and you can set the following things in the XML file:
– tooltip on or off
– tooltip background color
– tooltip background transparency
– links active or not
For each client dot you can set the following:
– dot x position
– dot y position
– initial dot size
– mouse over dot size
– initial dot color
– mouse over dot color
– dot caption/tooltip text
– dot link out URL
– dot link out target
