Change Log

Thanks all who had purchased this plug-in & suggested to add more features into plug-in. Below are change log for plug-in features which were not included in first version of the plug-in.

v1.0.0 - 28th March 2012 First release 
v1.0.1 - 28th March 2012 Added feature to add button label instead of button icon. So user can add ("1, 2, 3...", "a, b, c...", "A, B, C...", "I, II, III...") instead of open hot spot icon. 
v1.0.2 - 5th April 2012 Functionality added to maintain z-index to avoid overlapping of hot spot labels. 
v1.0.3 - 12th April 2012 Added feature for open hot spot label direction. User can specify hot spot label open direction as either "Left to Right" or "Right to Left" horizontally and "Up" or "Down" vertically. 
v1.0.4 - 18th April 2012 Added feature for opening only one hot spot label at a time, previously opened hot spot will be hide. 
v1.0.5 - 2nd June 2012 Changed HTML tag of Label Text from <p> to <div> so that user can add <h1> to <h6>, <ul> <ol> etc tags in label. 
v1.0.6 - 6th June 2012 Fixed the bug when user has specified width & height both. It was coming out of max allowed height. Also hot spot box width is now calculated based on image width/height rather than container width/height. If user wants it to set contaienr width/height as max allowed width/height just write... this.dotBoxWidth = this.$dotBox.outerWidth(true); this.dotBoxHeight = this.$dotBox.outerHeight(true);
