    Question document.all[i].style.backgroundImage not reading?

    hello

    I cant read the backgroundImage property in ie. i am using:

    document.all[i].style.backgroundImage

    but the property is just showing up blank. I can set it using:

    document.all[i].style.backgroundImage= "url(image.jpg)"

    i just cant read it?

    Learn CSS. | SSI | PHP includes | X/HTML Validator | CSS validator | Dynamic Site Solutions
    Java != JavaScript && JScript != JavaScript
    Design/program for Firefox (and/or Opera), apply fixes for IE, not the other way around.

    In other words, use id and document.getElementById(id) method instead of document.all[name].

    And use currentStyle (for IE) / getComputedStyle (for Moz) to retreive an embeded or external CSS attribute's value (see the Kravitz's links)
