onerror

Type: script code

This event is sent to an image element when an error occurs loading the image.

onload

Type: script code

This event handler will be called on the image element when the image has finished loading. This applies whether the image is applied via the src attribute or the list-style-image style property. If you change the image, the event will fire again when the new image loads. This event will not bubble up the element tree.

Type: image URL

The URL of the image to appear on the image. If this attribute is left out, no image appears.

Type: one of the values below

This attribute indicates whether to load the image from the cache or not. This would be useful if the images are stored remotely or you plan on swapping the image frequently. The following values are accepted, or leave out the attribute entirely for default handling:

question-icon
