Is this possible and can I use WebAssist?

My apologies if this is not the correct medium to post my inquiry. I'm hoping the Technical gurus out there can tell me if the following is possible, and if so, can I use WebAssist products to accomplish or do I have to use something else? If you point me in a direction, I can do more research. I don't know how to write java script code without a product to assist. Thanks.

I have an hmtl/php page that has 2 framesets. One frameset has an Image of a product. The other frameset is a Form that the customer fills out and updates my database from.

The Image shown has multiple items to choose color for. The customer selects a color for each of the items in the Image by selecting a radio button showing a picture of the color. Currently, these framesets are NOT connected. Customer picks the color via radio button, then submits all choices and updates my database. Image shows sample color choices and remains as is.

Here's what I WANT to do:
When the customer picks the radio button for the color (i.e. Shirt color) in the Form, I would like the Image to reflect the color choice (i.e. Shirt). As stated previously, I have multiple choices for each Image, so I'm thinking that I would have to somehow breakdown the Image into multiple "objects" that would tie back to the question on my Form and radio button color choice. I would then need to have some sort of button that would Refresh the Image "objects" reflecting the color choices selected on the Form. Once the customer is settled on all color choices, they can "Submit" the entire Form and update my database.

The Image is created and saved from Adobe CS3 Illustrator...so the color choices I give to my customer are actually specific Layers in Illustrator that I select and change the color for. Since I offer 30 colors for each object (i.e. Shirt) and each Image can have like 10 objects (i.e. Shirt, Shorts, Shoes, etc.)...it's unreasonable to create that many images to support all of the color combinations.

If you need to see my Website to get a better feel for what I'm doing, please let me know.
Thanks!!

the webassist extensions do not have the capabilities of doing what you are trying to accomplish.

If you are not going to create an image for each color combination, you would need to use PHP or javascript to create the image dynamically, Not an easy programing task.

In PHP you can use the GD library to generate an image:
book.image.php

I think you would need to use a combination of AJAX and PHP scripting tied to the onchange event of the radio buttons to change the image.

I am not aware of any extension that will help accomplish this. It would require extensive hand coding.
