Are you aware of any tag libraries that can be used to create thumbnail at client side and onClick open a popup to show complete Image with any tooltips or image maps that Image has?
In my application we have reports that are shown in images using BAR Charts and Line Charts. We are using JfreeChart and CEWOLF to generate these charts. Currently complete images are being shown on the browser, which is causing a bit of vertical scrolling. Requirement is to remove these scroll bars and show thumbnails instead. And on click show complete image.
Approach 3: Use AJAX. I just thought of this. I am not sure if there will be any browser limitations for this. I thought I can use DOM structure and get the Image Map values and using popupWindow.document.wrtie(), I can recreate maps for pop up Image.
I was wondering other than above 3 approaches if there is any other approach that I can use for clean solution to this problem.
I am in a crunch at work that is why I have not answered this sooner. Still am so I need to make it short.
Basically you have a two options in my mind. The first is you can have the image sizes set to a smaller size. When the user clicks on it you can increase the size to the correct portions. It would then cause the page size to shift. This way keeps you from having to regenerate the iamges for a second time.
