I have a datalist with an hyperlink, i assign images dynamically in codebehind, but i need to assign an image onMouseOver, the datasourceID is a Sitemap what I´m doing is this:

<asp:DataList ID="DataList1" runat="server" DataSourceID="SiteMapDataSource1" RepeatDirection="Horizontal"
                        <asp:HyperLink ID="btnMenu" runat="server" Enabled='<%# GetIsDisable(DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "Description","{0}"),DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "Url","{0}")) %>'
                            ImageUrl='<%# GetEnabled(DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "Description","{0}"),DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "Title","{0}")) %>'
                            NavigateUrl='<%# Eval("Url") %>' onMouseOver='<%# srcMouseOver(DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "Title","{0}"))%>'></asp:HyperLink>

  public string srcMouseOut(string Title)
        string thisSrc = "";
        string[] menu;
        menu = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["Menu"].ToString().Split(',');
        if (menu[0] == Title)
            if (Title == "Planning")
                thisSrc = "this.src='http://rgarcia/Apps_Intranet/Abc/Images/Buttons/btn_planning.jpg';";
        return thisSrc;

onMouseOver expects a javascript not an image src as you implements

i just solved it changing the hyperlink for an imageButton

 <asp:DataList ID="DataList1" runat="server" DataSourceID="SiteMapDataSource1"   RepeatDirection="Horizontal"  CellPadding="0" ShowFooter="False" ShowHeader="False">
       <asp:ImageButton ID="btnMenu" runat="server" Enabled='<%# GetIsDisable(DataBinder.EvalContainer.DataItem, "Description","{0}"),DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "Url","{0}")) %>' ImageUrl='<%# GetEnabled(DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "Description","{0}"),DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "Title","{0}")) %>'
onMouseOver='<%# srcMouseOver(DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "Title","{0}")) %>'
onMouseOut='<%# srcMouseOut(DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "Title","{0}")) %>'
                            PostBackUrl='<%# Eval("Url") %>'></asp:ImageButton>
