I want be able to click an image had have it perform a
Javascript function.  The IMG tag, however, has no onClick
event handler.  I've tried using imagemaps and links, and neither works.  Is there anyway to do this?
Watch Question

To get this to work you simply need to add an onClick to your HREF command which will then call your Javascript function.  To make any image clickable it must be within an HREF tagset under HTML.

Try the following:-

<A HREF="" onClick="yourfunction()"><IMG SRC="imagename.gif"></A>

Hope this helps
