Hi,

I have written some simple code that creates an image element, assigns the src and appends it to an existing element. Now this works fine in IE but not firefox.  Please coul some shed some light on this and a possible solution.

Below is my code:

Andrew
function AddImage(imageNumber, imageUrl)
{
    var o = document.getElementById("Image"+imageNumber);
    o.parentNode.className = "HasPhoto";
    var imageNode = document.createElement("image");
    imageNode.src = imageUrl; 
    o.appendChild(imageNode); //this only works in IE for some reason
    if(imageNumber!=3)
    {
        var nextObj= imageNumber+=1;
        document.getElementById("Image"+nextObj).parentNode.className = "FirstPhoto";
    }
}

Try this:

function AddImage(imageNumber, imageUrl)
{
    var o = document.getElementById("Image"+imageNumber);
    o.parentNode.className = "HasPhoto";
    var imageNode = document.createElement("img");
    imageNode.src = imageUrl;
    o.appendChild(imageNode); //this only works in IE for some reason
    if(imageNumber!=3)
    {
        var nextObj= imageNumber+=1;
        document.getElementById("Image"+nextObj).parentNode.className = "FirstPhoto";
    }
}
