View Full Version : How do I disable this icon?

10-10-2005, 03:47 PM
Anybody know if there is a way I can disable the small icon that appears on screen when the mouse pointer comes into contact with (in this case) a .gif image? The icon is grey and depicts 4 options - save; print; e-mail; and something else..?!

Not a 'biggy' problem though it's annoying and is a distraction. If there's something I can put into the code to prevent this from appearing - I'd really like to know.

If it makes any difference the .gif is being displayed within a <DIV>.

Thanks all in advance.

That is actually not a good way to do it. It is not widely known but, I have discovered that using:

<meta http-equiv="imagetoolbar" content="no" />

can and usually does create memory leaks. If you use this a lot on your site or if the page gets refreshed often, it will eat up memory like nobody's business until all instances of the browser are closed. Better to use the less convenient:

<img galleryimg="no" src="some.jpg">

option on just those images that are large enough to require it (below a certain size, images will not display that toolbar anyway).
