Reset Image: Settings

The image reset provides for a some options on how the image is displayed.

<FORM ACTION="../cgi-bin/mycgi.pl">
<INPUT NAME="query">
<INPUT TYPE=IMAGE SRC="go2.gif" HEIGHT=22 WIDTH=50 ALT="go!" BORDER=0 ALIGN=TOP>

<SCRIPT TYPE="text/javascript">
<!--
var ri = new resetimage("reset.gif");
ri.confirm=false;
ri.alt="reset!";
ri.width=70;
ri.height=22;
ri.otheratts = "ALIGN=TOP";
ri.write();
//-->
</SCRIPT>
<NOSCRIPT>
<INPUT TYPE=RESET>
</NOSCRIPT>

</FORM>

By default the script checks if the user really wants to reset the form (usually a good idea, see RESET). If for whatever reason you don't want this confirmation then set the confirm property to false: ri.confirm=false;.

You can specify the width, height, and alternate text of the reset image with those corresponding properties: ri.alt="reset!";, ri.width=70;, and ri.height=22;.

Finally, if you have any HTML attributes you want added to the <IMG ...> tag you can set those with the otheratts property. In our example we set the alignment with ri.otheratts = "ALIGN=TOP";.
