image.onload event and browser cache

I want to create an alert box after an image is loaded, but if the image is saved in the browser cache, the .onload event will not be fired.

How do I trigger an alert when an image has been loaded regardless of whether the image has been cached or not?

var img = new Image();
img.src = "img.jpg";
img.onload = function () {
   alert("image is loaded");
}

As you're generating the image dynamically, set the onload property before the src.

var img = new Image();
img.onload = function () {
   alert("image is loaded");
}
img.src = "img.jpg";

Fiddle - tested on latest Firefox and Chrome releases.

You can also use the answer in this post, which I adapted for a single dynamically generated image:

var img = new Image();
// 'load' event
$(img).on('load', function() {
  alert("image is loaded");
});
img.src = "img.jpg";

Fiddle

If the src is already set then the event is firing in the cached case before you even get the event handler bound. So, you should trigger the event based off .complete also.

code sample:

$("img").one("load", function() {
   //do stuff
}).each(function() {
   if(this.complete || /*for IE 10-*/ $(this).height() > 0)
     $(this).load();
});

I have met the same issue today. After trying various method, I realize that just put the code of sizing inside $(window).load(function() {}) instead of document.ready would solve part of issue (if you are not ajaxing the page).

There are two possible solutions for these kind of situations:

  1. Use the solution suggested on this post
  2. Add a unique suffix to the image src to force browser downloading it again, like this:

    var img = new Image();
    img.src = "img.jpg?_="+(new Date().getTime());
    img.onload = function () {
        alert("image is loaded");
    }
    

In this code every time adding current timestamp to the end of the image URL you make it unique and browser will download the image again

Answer

I found that you can just do this in Chrome:

  $('.onload-fadein').each(function (k, v) {
    v.onload = function () {
        $(this).animate({opacity: 1}, 2000);
    };
    v.src = v.src;
});

Setting the .src to itself will trigger the onload event.
