imagebutton as an href

HI everyone,

I have a navigation menu where I've converted my 'a href' tags with rollover images inside them to asp:imagebuttons so they load more efficiently.

However, I'm a little unsure about the best way to add the redirection on each control, they are links to other pages in the site without coding behind.  All the controls are in an include file that is loaded with every page on the site so I don't really want to add response.redirect to every control on every page.

So, two questions:

1. Is there a way to redirect to a new page using an imagebutton in the actual aspx page?

2. I don't think I'd want the control to post back to the server would I?

<asp:ImageButton ImageUrl="Images/home.gif" onMouseOver="this.src='Images/home_rvs.gif';" onMouseOut="this.src='Images/home.gif';" runat="server" AlternateText="home" AutoPostBack="false" >

I hope all that makes sense!
thanks in advance

how about when you create the controls, add this attribute as well --> "onClick = xxxxxx" ?

<asp:ImageButton ImageUrl="Images/home.gif" onMouseOver="this.src='Images/home_rvs.gif';" onMouseOut="this.src='Images/home.gif';" runat="server" AlternateText="home" onClick="location.href='home.aspx'; return false;" >

but if you type "onClick"'s actions within the imagebutton tag manually, it will cause error, sth. like it will conflicts with imagebutton click server events
it's ok if u add the onclick events in this way imagebutton1.Attributes.Add("onClick","location.href='home.aspx';return false;");

so if you really don't need server side codes for those image buttons, i will suggest you to use <a href='home.aspx' onClick="xxxxx"><img src='home.gif'></a> or <input type=image src='home.gif' onClick="xxxxx" />

cool, so I'll have to add some server side code unless I use an A tag with an IMG.  

thanks orbulat :)
