Topic: JavaScript / jQueryPrev|Next

Answer: Use the jQuery attr() Method

You can use the attr() method to change the image source (i.e. the src attribute of the <img> tag) in jQuery. The following example will change the image src when you clicks on the image.

  • <!DOCTYPE html>
  • <html lang="en">
  • <head>
  • <meta charset="utf-8">
  • <title>jQuery Change Image Source on Click</title>
  • <style>
  •     .card{
  •         margin: 30px;
  •     }
  • </style>
  • <script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.12.4.min.js"></script>
  • <script>
  • $(document).ready(function(){
  •     $("img").click(function(){
  •         // Change src attribute of image
  •         $(this).attr("src", "images/card-front.jpg");
  •     });    
  • });
  • </script>
  • </head>
  • <body>
  •     <div class="card">
  •         <img src="images/card-back.jpg" alt="Poker Card">
  •     </div>
  • </body>
  • </html>
