View Full Version : button or image for submit

05-14-2008, 09:49 PM
Hello all. I have read many places on how to use an image for a submit button. I have the following code:

<input name="btnAddCustomer" type="image" id="btnAddCustomer" onClick="Javascript:AddCustomer();" value="Add Customer" SRC="../Images/Add.gif" ALT="Add to Customer List" width="13" height="13">

Here is the AddCustomer() function:

function AddCustomer() {

var i = confirm ("Are you sure that you want to add this customer to the Customer List?");
if (i==true)
alert("Customer has been added to the database.");


.. well, this is causing strange issues. It seems that when I use an image for the button, no matter what I choose on the Confirm action, it still submits the form. If I just change the type from Image to Button, and nothing else, then js functions properly.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

return false to stop the form submitting, I believe.

Thank you. That worked, although I had to put it in the <form> tag. I figured it would have went in the script, but when I did that, the same thing happened. Could you explain why I needed it on the form tag? Is that to make sure that JS is the one submitting the form and not the button?

Thanks again,
