CSS Question

Preloading CSS Images

I have a hidden contact form which is deployed clicking on a button. Its fields are set as CSS background images, and they always appears a bit later than the div that have been toggled.

I was using this snippet in the

<head>
section, but with no luck (after I cleared the cache) :

<script>
$(document).ready(function() {
pic = new Image();
pic2 = new Image();
pic3 = new Image();
pic.src="<?php bloginfo('template_directory'); ?>/images/inputs/input1.png";
pic2.src="<?php bloginfo('template_directory'); ?>/images/inputs/input2.png";
pic3.src="<?php bloginfo('template_directory'); ?>/images/inputs/input3.png";
});
</script>


I'm using jQuery as my library, and it would be cool if I could use it as well for arranging this issue.

Thanks for your thoughs.

Answer

I can confirm that my original code seems to work. I was casually sticking to an image with a wrong path.

Here's a test : http://paragraphe.org/slidetoggletest/test.html

<script>
  pic = new Image();
  pic2 = new Image();
  pic3 = new Image();
    pic.src="images/inputs/input1.png";
    pic2.src="images/inputs/input2.png";
    pic3.src="images/inputs/input3.png";
</script>
