Why do you want that.. do you want to disable postback on some condition.

If not then why not use an Image control instead??

Adding on..

If you need to use an ImageButton control and want to cancel postback..
Use the "Enabled" property.. it will disable postback.

myImageButton.Enabled = false;

This property is not listed in the Property pages, when you use Visual Studio .NET.. but it is an inherited property of ImageButton control(inherited from Image).. see the MSDN documentation here..

You could enable / disable it conditionally ..

As I asked.. >>Why do you want to do that (disable postback) ?? On what condition do you want it to work and on what condition do you want it to not work?

rather, best to put a semi-colon at then end of that, or you might run into some javascript errors..
myImageButton.attributes.add("onClick", "javascript:return false;")

well "execute" in an imagebutton is a postback!, unless you've written some javascript otherwise that you aren't telling us about.

Do you need to link to postback?  ImageButtons are actually form elements (if you ever look at the source), if you don't need the page to postback then you shouldn't be using them.  If you just want to do client-side operations you should just define a regular image "<img src="blah.jpg" /> and add an onClick handler that in client-script will change the src attribute of the <iframe>.  Is this what you are after?

You can even use HyperLink Control from WebControls.

 - Set ImageUrl property of HyperLink to your image.
 - Set NavigateUrl and Target URL according to your need

It doesn't sound like you need server-side control (where you currently have your ImageButton) at all.  Just plain ol' HTML:

    <a href="NewPageUrl.aspx" target="otherFrameName"><img src="yourImage.jpg"></a>

If you wanna check the image onmouseover:

    <a href="NewPageUrl.aspx" target="otherFrameName"
        onmouseover="document.getElementById('imgBtn').src='MouseOverImage.jpg';"
        onmouseout="document.getElementById('imgBtn').src='yourImage.jpg';"
    ><img id="imgBtn" src="yourImage.jpg"></a>

I will check out the exact syntact, but for mouseover image rotation you can add an attribute to HyperLink in your page_load event liek following

HyperLink1.attributes.add("onMouseOver", "javascript:this.src='NEW URL';")

I didn't read all the above, I just wanted to add something about the answer in case you need it.

If you'd like to conditionally cancel postback for an image button, you can use a javascript confirm dialog:

//in code
myImageButton.Attributes.Add( "onclick", "return confirm( 'Do you still want to PostBack?' );" );

Hello lem2802,
Add following 2 line in your Page_Load event it will work:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

HyperLink1.Attributes.Add("onMouseOver", " this.firstChild.src='[Image1]' ");
HyperLink1.Attributes.Add("onMouseOut", "this.firstChild.src='[Image2]' ");

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
