_IEFormImageClick ( ByRef $o_object, $s_linkText [, $s_mode = "src" [, $i_index = 0 [, $f_wait = 1]]] )

Parameters

$o_object Object variable of any DOM element (will be converted to the associated document object)
$s_linkText Value used to match element - treatment based on $s_mode

$f_wait [optional] specifies whether to wait for page to load before returning
    0 = Return immediately, not waiting for page to load
    1 = (Default) Wait for page load to complete before returning

Return Value

@error: 1 ($_IEStatus_GeneralError) - General Error
2 ($_IEStatus_COMError) - COM Error in Object reference
3 ($_IEStatus_InvalidDataType) - Invalid Data Type
4 ($_IEStatus_InvalidObjectType) - Invalid Object Type

Remarks

The <input type=image> form element is handled differently from all others.
It is not recognized by Internet Explorer as a member of the form element collection and this function therefore gives you other means of getting a reference to it within the document using src, name or alt strings.
Regardless of the object passed to this function, it looks for the form element within the full document context.

"name" is no more supported when using HTLM5 but still accepted and equivalent to "id" for HTML5 pages.
