Managing Status bar message onMouseOver of a linkWE can use windows status bar to display messages by linking it with events. We will be using windows objects status property to display this message.
Status bar is at the bottom of your browser. If it is not visible then go to View menu of your browser and click the status bar option. One check or tick will appear before the status bar option and the bar at the bottom of your browser will be displayed.
We will use onMouseOver and onMouseOut events of a hyper link to display or manage the messages.
Here is the demo which is a hyper link pointing to home page of this site ( plus2net.com )
Visit Home page
Now let us see the code of the above demo.
See the code below and watch how the OnMouseOver event is written to display a different URL than the actual one.
