Because my approach to remote desktop is to return back only changed images after i click on the screen (so if i click START the request is sent to the server and eventually i get back a snapshot of only the START popup menu -- i then position this small image overtop of my larger display to give the proper illusion) I need to compose NEW <IMG> tags to allow me to display these new partial images in my client window. I'm constantly using:
var getNewServerImage = new Image()
(and once the newly returned image has completed loading)
clientOnScreenDisplay.innerHTML+="img src="+getNewServerImage.src+" style='position:absolute; top:"+getServerYPos+"; left:"+getServerXPos+"'>";
Thats pretty much what i do for several partial images returned from my server in order to construct the changes found on its side.
I've looked into using CSS Compositor filter of IE but that seemed almost exactly like what i was doing above saving me nothing (ie. innerHTML was required to be concatted to). If it is possible I ONLY care about getting the imagery displayed in the proper location. Having it available as an object is COMPLETELY USELESS to me so if there is an approach which can help me achieve this I'd gladly be all over it.
Thanks for your thoughts!
