Needs Examples: This section should include examples.



The x-coordinate is submitted under the name of the control with .x appended, and the y-coordinate is submitted under the name of the control with .y appended. Any value property is ignored. The src property specifies the img element. The following image and video file formats are supported:

  • .avi—Audio-Visual Interleaved (AVI)
  • .bmp—Windows Bitmap (BMP)
  • .emf—Windows Enhanced Metafile (EMF)
  • .png—Graphics Interchange Format (GIF)
  • .png, .jpeg—Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG)
  • .mov—Apple QuickTime Movie (MOV)
  • .mpg, .mpeg—Motion Picture Experts Group (MPEG)
  • .png—Portable Network Graphics (PNG)
  • .wmf—Windows Metafile (WMF)
  • .xbm—X Bitmap (XBM)

In IE8 Standards mode or later, the title attribute is preferred over the alt attribute when specified as a pop-up tooltip. In addition, the value of the src attribute depends on the current document compatibility mode.
