Re-loading corrupt images
Posted on 1997-06-26
I am using MediaTracker to keep track of the loading status of some images that I need for my applet. Even though all images are completely and correctly in the browsers cache (check with about:cache), MediaTracker.isErrorAny() and getErrorsAny() will return true (I am using a separate MediaTracker for each image, so I think using the Any-functions is not the problem :).
The Image objects that I try to load the pictures in will be (null).
The really strange things is that when you start the applet again (without flushing the cache), the pictures MAY load.
Whats going wrong here?
Netscape 3/4 and MSIE behave the same way on Win95/NT.
