Applies to ?
## Examples

The following example defines the map. Clicking within the rectangular areas of the map loads a new page into a target window named frame1.

<MAP NAME="map1">
   <AREA NAME="area1" COORDS="4,20,20,40" href="left_arrow.htm" target="frame1"/>
   <AREA NAME="area2" COORDS="116,20,100,40" href="right_arrow.htm" target="frame1"/>
</MAP>

The following example shows USEMAP with an image.

<IMG USEMAP="#map1" BORDER="0" SRC="double_pointed_arrow.png">

The following example shows USEMAP with an object. This technique requires Internet Explorer 8 and later.

<OBJECT data="double_pointed_arrow.png" border="0" type="image/gif" usemap="#map1">
</OBJECT>

Notes

Remarks

The useMap property identifies the image as a client-side image map by associating a map object with the image. This map object contains area objects that define regions within the image. The user can click these regions to navigate to a designated URL. You can dynamically assign the maps to the image through the useMap property. In Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 and greater, this property applies to the object and input objects.
