Clickable Images Configuration File - Rectangle

The next statement in the configuration file:


rectangle  http://eelab.usyd.edu.au/~rodica/itopics/map-red.html 17,22 91,93

defines the URL to be displayed when the user clicks in the rectangular area defined by the coordinates specified. The format used to specify the coordinates is: x1,y1 x2,y2.

In the square-circle-triangle configuration file, the rectangle specification defines the area of the red box in the image by specifying an upper-left corner of 17,22 and a lower-right corner of 91,93. More information will be presented later on how to determine the coordinates on the image. Read Further Readings Chapter for some Map Maker tools.

Note: Statements can span more than one line in the configuration file.

Okay, I understand the rectangle specification, what's next?
