Use an Image as a Form Submit Button
By Stephen Bucaro
Most modern websites use an image submit button rather than the default gray button. It's
very easy to create an image submit button because the html input type="image" by default
creates a from submit button. The only thing you need is to provide an image for the button.
Shown below is example code of a form that uses an image submit button. Here the visitor
would request a report to be sent to their email.
<form name="reportform" action="http://www.domain.com/formcode.asp">
<label>Email Address: </label><input type="text" name="email" size="28" />
<input type="image" align="middle" name="submit" alt="Send Report" border="1" width="46" height="31" src="sendreport.jpg">
Note: A link to the server-side code that processes the form data needs to be placed in the
form tag's action attribute as shown in the code. The form shown above does not actually
submit the form to the server, but instead uses the image button's onclick event along
onclick="alert(document.reportform.email.value); return false;"
