I was active in this bbs some time ago, and my inquiries were
mainly about how to "refresh" a layer onMousedown because
of a problem I was having with an animated gif (that was in the
layer) crapping out on me at random intervals. I have sinced
learned that an ideal workaround to this would be to trigger a
a temperamental animated gif. Perhaps someone here can help
me achieve this.
My page uses "DIV" tags instead of the "LAYER" tag, and I'm
wondering if there's even any difference. Also, how do I
changeout the image that's in the layer? Presently, I have an
animated gif in the layer, and my intention is to replace it with a
1x1.gif that is stretched to the same dimensions as the gif.
Then, I guess by giving the image a name, I can reference it
somehow when I write my image changeout function. But how
do I do that? How would I write a function that changes out an
image that's in another layer?
