Just a quick question, is there any reason why 'onmouseover' and 'onmouseout' won't work in page generated by RSD? I have them in an HTML element to show an image a bit bigger when the mouse is over it. The image appears at normal size just fine but nothing happens when the mouse is hovered or leaves the area.

Here is relevant bit of code generated by RSD
<div class="row">
<div class="coffee-span-2 coffee-498-span-4 coffee-793-span-3 coffee-390-span-5">
<div class="rule">
<hr>
</div>
<div class="html-element adpop"><img src="AdPavillion.jpg" width="200" height="200"
onmouseover="this.width=500;this.height=500;"
onmouseout="this.width=200;this.height=200" /></div>

It worked fine in VSD.
Environment is Win 8.1 with Chrome and Firefox

BTW great work! RSD is fine product once you get your head around it!

Thanks, Pat

Since a mobile touchscreen device has no cursor arrow, there is no way to indicate a hover.

Since RSD is for creating responsive sites, you need to think beyond the desktop/laptop. Some functions just don't work well – or at all on mobile devices.;)
I don't know what the specific issue might be in RSD (I don't use mouseovers), but maybe a tooltip script might be better?

You may also need some touch-punch.js
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

Hi again,

Thanks for your guidance and you are indeed correct and a little more thinking was needed! After research on the web I've adopted a 'Click to enlarge / click to shrink' solution which works well on all devices I've tried so far (I haven't got anything Apple based!). You can see it here http://claygateflowershow.co.uk/2015rsdtest/ - it works on the 'cafe' advert in the left hand column. Please note this site is being actively developed so things may have changed if you look many days after this post! This is where I found it

Thanks again, Pat
