View Full Version : Ext.Img has no alt config

I want to supply alternate text with an image but the Ext.Img class has no alt config to do this.

I noticed Ext JS 4.1 has this ability and it would be a useful enhancement for Sencha Touch 2.

By default the Ext.Img works by specifying the image as the background image on the <div> so the alt config would not make a difference.

You have the error event to handle any error on the image like not being able to load.

The default option if mode is "background" then a div is rendered but if the mode is anything else then an img tag is rendered.

The html5 spec (http://www.w3schools.com/html5/att_img_alt.asp) has the alt tag as a required attribute.

The reason behind this is we've had a WCAG 2.0 compliance check run against our mobile Sencha 2 website and this is one of the non-compliant areas.
