Hi there, can anyone let me know how to add an "ALT" tag to this bit of javascript?

myimages[1]="html/images/cat-image-10.jpg"

Cheers

myimages[1].alt = "this is alt text";

myimages[1].setAttribute('alt','whatever');

If nothing worsk, show us the rest of the script.

Sorry ninnypants.

Ok, do I combine it in one line or two?

E.g. myimages[1]="html/images/cat-image-10.jpg", "setAttribute('alt','whatever')";

or like this

myimages[1]="html/images/cat-image-10.jpg",
myimages[1].setAttribute('alt','Cat Image 10');
myimages[2]="html/images/cat-image-11.jpg",
myimages[2].setAttribute('alt','Cat Image 11');

Cheers

The later should work, except you need to replace the comma ( , ) with colon ( ; ):


myimages[1]="html/images/cat-image-10.jpg";
myimages[1].setAttribute('alt','Cat Image 10');
myimages[2]="html/images/cat-image-11.jpg";
myimages[2].setAttribute('alt','Cat Image 11');


If nothing helps, up a link or show to us the rest of the script.

myimages[1]="html/images/cat-image-10.jpg", If you are assigning the src attribute, the above should be

myimages[1].src="html/images/cat-image-10.jpg";

I'm having the same trouble with adding an ALT tag to the last image:

var imageList = [
"images/banner/banner1.jpg",
"images/banner/banner2.jpg",
"images/banner/banner3.jpg",
"images/banner/banner4.jpg",
"images/banner/banner4.jpg",
];

Can anyone help?

"images/banner/banner4.jpg",

banner5.jpg???
