innerHTML IE issues

P: n/a
I have a function that works in firefox, but is having some issues in
IE. What it does is place an image in a specified cell, when an icon in
the adjacent cell is clicked. I have to click the link half a dozen
times for the full size image to load in the adjacent cell. It appears
to load %20 of the image then stops. In firefox, I click once and it
works. any ideas?

Here is the offending code, and well at the HTML. I don't know if it
matters, but I put all my javascript functions in a separate file.

function changeContent(id,shtml) {
if (document.getElementById || document.all) {
var repl = document.getElementById? document.getElementById(id):
document.all[id];
if (repl && typeof repl.innerHTML != "undefined") repl.innerHTML
= shtml;
}
}

var s1='<img src="images/large/scan0001_c.jpg">'
var s2='<img src="images/large/scan0002_c.jpg">'
var s3='<img src="images/large/scan0003_c.jpg">'
var s4='<img src="images/large/scan0004_c.jpg">'
var s5='<img src="images/large/scan0005_c.jpg">'
var s6='<img src="images/large/scan0006_c.jpg">'

No, what it does is change the innerHTML of a specified cell. It is far
more efficient (and cross-browser) to simply change the source of the image.

Give your image a name attribute, change its .src property via the
document.images collection.

Here is the offending code, and well at the HTML. I don't know if it
matters, but I put all my javascript functions in a separate file.

function changeContent(id,shtml) {
if (document.getElementById || document.all) {
var repl = document.getElementById? document.getElementById(id):
document.all[id];
if (repl && typeof repl.innerHTML != "undefined") repl.innerHTML
= shtml;
}
}
var s1='<img src="images/large/scan0001_c.jpg">'
var s2='<img src="images/large/scan0002_c.jpg">'
var s3='<img src="images/large/scan0003_c.jpg">'
var s4='<img src="images/large/scan0004_c.jpg">'
var s5='<img src="images/large/scan0005_c.jpg">'
var s6='<img src="images/large/scan0006_c.jpg">'


var imageList = new Array()
imageList[1]='scan0001_c.jpg';
imageList[2]='scan0002_c.jpg';
imageList[3]='scan0003_c.jpg';
imageList[4]='scan0004_c.jpg';
imageList[5]='scan0005_c.jpg';
imageList[6]='scan0006_c.jpg';

var path = 'images/large/';

function changeImage(newImage){
if (document.images){
document.images['myImage'].src = path + imageList[newImage];
}
}

And then have your html as such:

<img src="something.jpg" name="myImage".....>

And then your links look something like this:

<a href="noJS.html"
onclick="changeImage('');return false">
Change the Image</a>
