Hiding an ASP.NET Image Control from Javascript

Hello everyone!

Got a really irritating problem that just wont quit.

I am trying to hide an <asp:image> control from javascript.

What I basically have are the following three components

asp:ImageMap
asp:RectangleHotSpot
asp:Image

Now, the asp:Image is an overlay to the ImageMap.  It starts with Visible set to false.
When the user clicks the RectangleHotSpot, I want to make the asp:image visible.

I have setup my asp:ImageMap to use HotSpotMode="Navigate".
The asp:RectangleHotSpot has the navigation url set to "javascript:flipImageVisibility('1');"

Each hotspot will have its own value that it imputs into the flipImageVisibility function.

The javascript function is defined below in the code part.

What essentially happens is that document.getElementById always returns null.  I have tried using the exact id, as well as the objectid.ClientID.  Both always return null.

Anyone know what could possibly be wrong?

Thanks!
function flipImageVisibility(id) {
			        
			        switch (id) {
			            case "1":
			                document.getElementById('<%=imgOverlay1.ClientID%>').Visible = 
! document.getElementById('<%=imgOverlay1.ClientID%>').Visible;
			                break;
			        }
			        
			    }

It's style.visibility - document.getElementById('<%=imgOverlay1.ClientID%>').style.visibility

and, you need to check for 'visible' or 'hidden'. It doesn't work like a boolean field.

like this
case "1":
                                  if (document.getElementById('<%=imgOverlay1.ClientID%>').style.visibility == 'visible')
document.getElementById('<%=imgOverlay1.ClientID%>').style.visibility = 'hidden';
else
document.getElementById('<%=imgOverlay1.ClientID%>').style.visibility = 'visible';

                                  break;


You can optimize the code

I used style.display = 'none' in the end.
