Hi,

I am changing an image to an ajax spinner, uploading a new image, changin the image back to the original url + a random string to avoid caching.

However, the image does not always update and sometimes needs a reload.

How can I can it to always show the new image?


Thanks.

Julian

Your logic should work since every time you are setting the <img> src to a unique value. I guess sometimes browser fails to update the image. If it is in your control I would say change the image name that you upload - something similar to the following:


$(actualImageId).attr({
                                    src     : '../images/imageLoader.gif',
                                    width   :'31',
                                    height  :'31'
                                });
          
          var dummy = Math.floor(Math.random()*9999999);
          ajaxFileUpload(imageId,intDay+dummy);
          
          
          
                    
          $(actualImageId).attr({
                                    src     : '../images/archive/'+intDay+dummy+'img'+imageId+'.jpg',
                                    width   :'140',
                                    height  :'90'
                                });
