I don't understand why I can't chnage the image by chaning the src. What am I doing wrong?


<td id="TagLine" colspan="2" align="right"><?php echo '<img id="DoYouMeasureUp" src="'.BASEURL .$taglinefile .'" alt="'.$_SESSION['lang']['tagline'] .'" width="296" height="44"/>'?>
	</td>

Open in new window


I added this in a jQuery and tried all three different ways to define path to file
	$("#sLangSelect").live('change', function(){
		
		var myLanguage = $(this).val();
		//runReport();
		//$("#headerSection").load('/aaMain/header.php');
		switch (myLanguage)
		{
			case '1':
				
				$('img').attr('src') = '/images/do-you-measure-up-english.gif';
	
				break;
			case '2':
				
				$('#DoYouMeasureUp').attr('src')= "images/do-you-measure-up-french.gif";
			
				break;
			case '3':
				
				$('#DoYouMeasureUp').attr('src')= "http://dev.secure.emetrixsystems.com/images/do-you-measure-up-spanish.gif";
				
				break;
		}
		
		
	/*	var rt = $.ajax({
	   type: "POST",
	   url: "/aaMain/header.php?ulang="+$(this).val(),
	   //data: $("form[name=filters]").serialize(),
	   success: function(msg){
$("#headerSection").html(msg); }
});*/

		
});
