Creating a Mouseover Alert Box within a Web Page

You can create a mouseover alert box within a web page that will load an alert box when your visitor moves their mouse over a specified link.

Example Alert Box

To view this example, place your mouse over the above link, but do not click on it.

If you would like an alert box to appear when your visitors place their mouse over a link, place the code below within your HTML where you would like the link to appear.
<a href="" onMouseOver="alert('Your Message');return true;">Link text</a>

Change the text where indicated in red to whatever you'd like.

The "Your Message" text indicates the text that will be displayed in your alert box.

The "Link text" text indicates the text that will be displayed with your link.

Although you can use the above code to load a mouseover alert box, use it carefully, as you don't want to irritate your visitors.
