I need to display a certain part of my page after a big picture is loaded. How can I catch this event?


This can be done easily with the onload and onerror event handlers that all IMG elements have. In those handlers you can check whether the images is loaded by reading the complete property.

Here's an example for images with event handlers:

<img onload="alert(this.src + ' loaded completely')" src="pie.gif" name=sampleImage>

// To check whether a certain image is loaded:
if (document.images['sampleImage'].complete) {
  alert('yes, it is loaded already');

that! You was wrong about keep telling me that the folnlwiog code would be OK and it will be called onload event:function f() { alert( 'message 1' ); }window.onload = f();alert( 'message 2' );I was keep telling you that will NOT be run onload event. Instead you should call like this: window.onload = f;And regarding beeing savvy .let's say that I don't need to be considered savvy.
