Can you swap images and swap href properties associated with the images onclick?

Can you swap images and the href properties associated with both images onclick? For example based on the script below.
I am intending for the links to target either pop-ups or pages in other frames and function like a toggle switch.

<script language="JavaScript"><!--
function flip(name,src) {
    if (document.images)
        document.images[name].src = src;
}
//--></script>

<a href="#" onClick="flip('image1','image1a.gif');return false"><img src="image1.gif" name="image1" width="100" height="100" border="0"></a>

If I understand your question, you're trying to toggle an image src and an popup opener href using Javascript.  This should be possible using something like:

function flip(name,src) {
    switch(name)
    {
       case "image1":
          opener.location = "http://link1";
          document.images[name].src = src;
          break
       case "image2":
          opener.location = "http://link2";
          document.images[name].src = src;
          break
       default:
          break
    }
}

Hi,

 if you remove the 'return false', clicking will send the page to the url

<html><head>
<script>
var imageNames = new Array();
imageNames['image1'] = new Image();
imageNames['image1'].src = 'http://members.aol.com/grassblad/images/grassAvatar.jpg'
imageNames['image2'] = new Image();
imageNames['image2'].src = 'http://members.aol.com/grassblad/images/moiAvatar.jpg'

var imgHrefs = new Array()
imgHrefs['image1'] = 'http://members.aol.com/grassblad'
imgHrefs['image2'] = 'http://www.webxpertz.net/forums'

function flip(lnk, img1, img2)
{
  lnk = imgHrefs[img2];
  document.images[img1].src = imageNames[img2].src;
}
</script>
</head>
<body>
<a href="#" onclick="flip(this, 'image1','image2');return false"><img src="http://members.aol.com/grassblad/images/grassAvatar.jpg" name="image1" width="100" height="100" border="0"></a>
</body>
</html>
