Employment/Purpose

An area of a image map. Instead of the application processing the coordinates, developers can add the area components as children of a imagemap component thus defining a target. The imagemap component will translate the mouse pointer coordinates into a logical name ie. The id of the area the user clicked.

Example

<imagemap src="/img/sun.jpg" onClick="alert(event.area)">
	<area id="First" coords="0, 0, 100, 100"/>
	<area id="Second" shape="circle" coords="200, 200, 100"/>
</imagemap>

The shape Property

An area component supports three kinds of shapes: circle, polygon and rectangle. The coordinates of the mouse position are screen pixels counted from the upper-left corner of the image beginning with (0, 0).


Shape
Coordinates / Description
circle coords="x, y, r"

where x and y define the position of the circle’s center and r is the radius in pixels.

polygon coords="x1, y1, x2, y2, x3, y3..."

where each pair of x and y define a point of the polygon. At least three pairs of coordinates are required to define a triangle. The polygon is automatically closed, so it is not necessary to repeat the first coordinate at the end of the list to close the region.

rectangle coords="x1, y1, x2, y2"

where the first coordinate pair is one corner of the rectangle and the other pair is the corner diagonally opposite. A rectangle is just a shortened way of specifying a polygon with four vertices.

If the coordinates in one area component overlap with another, the first one takes precedence.
