       [rz] Rollover Layers

The lightweight solution to rollover layers.
Similar to the rollover extension, this one allows you to rollover almost any object!
It can also be fully handled only by the keyboard (tab keys and so on) and solves the lack of the mouseover event in touch devices.
Sample project file included.

Some features:

- Move your mouse over the slideshow panels to see it in action or press the tab key until objects
  get the focus.
- Fully keyboard support with smart mouse/keyboard detection and handling.
- Touch devices are supported to workaround the lack of mouseover event.
- The "over" layer can even have advanced scripting such as slideshows or images with effects.
- Multi-instance.
- Multi-objects-couples of ids for even easier setup.
- Automated startup.

How to use?

1. build your 'base' layer as you usually do; it can have an images, texts, slideshows and so on...
2. build your 'over' layer as you usually do; it can also have links!
3. drag and drop this extension.
4. setup the required parameters:
    a) Layer1: is the 'base' layer.
    b) Layer2: is the 'over' layer that will be shown over the 'base' layer.
5. setup the optional parameters if you want to customize some behavior details...



You can setup chained layers entering their ids separated by commas; in that case, you must enter the same number of 'base' and 'over' layers ids.

Layer1: MyBaseLayer
Layer2: MyOverLayer

Layer1: MyFirstBaseLayer, MySecondBaseLayer, MyThirdBaseLayer
Layer2: MyFirstOverLayer, MySecondOverLayer, MyThirdOverLayer
