HI Guys,

I'm showing picture in my html page in this way:

<img src="smiley.gif" alt="There is no picture" width="42" height="42">

Open in new window


The issue I have is when the picture doesn't exist I would like to alt="There is no picture" message.
I'm getting the message but I'm getting also little thumb nail which I don't need.

There is work around it to make just the message to appear in case picture doesn't exist?


Thanks,

There's no handy css or js property you can hook into do validate that, but there is a js event.
The images if they don't download properly will throw an "error" event (onerror),
You would have to hook up an event handler for that to change the class or hide the image if and when that is thrown.

Now the question is how do I do it.

Can you send some code example?

Thank you for the idea.

Here is how I solved it.

var img = document.getElementById("myImg");
img.onerror = function () {
    this.style.display = "none";
}
