src attribute | src property

Sets or retrieves a URL to be loaded by the object.

Syntax

HTML<element src="p" ... >
JavaScript

p = object.src

 

Property values

Type: String

The URL.

Remarks

The value of the src attribute of the img and input type=image elements depends on the context of the reference to the attribute. When read as a Document Object Model (DOM) attribute, src returns a URL relative to the hosting domain. The value specified by the page author is returned when src is read as a content attribute, when the page is displayed in an earlier document compatibility mode.

Examples

This example uses the src property to change the image's src attribute.


<body onmousedown="oImage.src='sphere.png'" onmouseup="oImage.src='cone.png'">
... 
	<img id="oImage" src="cone.jpeg">

</body>
