wanted: workaround to javascript:show (...); instead of onClick forNetscare 4

I was calling a function in a js file from an image onClick event, but
someone still using Netscape 4 (!) complained that it didn't work. I
read that img onClick doesn't work in Netscape 4, so swithced it to
"javascript:sho w(...);" and the code works, but I read in this group
that it was not wise to do that, here's the working version, using the
not recommended approach:

<a href="javascrip t:show('art_2.j pg','600','448' );" target="_self">

I'd appreciate any suggetions that will let me call the "show" function
from an onClick image event that will work in most IE/Netscape 4+ browsers.

TIA,
Mike

<a href="#" onclick="show(. ..);return false"><img...> </a>

By the way, it's not that "onclick doesn't work in Netscape 4",
it's just that way back then, images weren't considered things
that should react when clicked.

<a href="#"
onclick="show(. ..); return false;"><img src="whatever.g if"
alt="whatever"> </a>

I want to display a table on a page based on whether a button is pressed or not. I'm new at php so I'm sure I'm making a basic mistake. Here's what I am trying. My thought was that $show_summary would switch states with each click but it is coming up always true. So I'm guessing that is the default setting when the page loads. Can someone please point out where I am going wrong? if(isset($_POST)) { $show_summary = true; } else {

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
