How to show different images for a single button?

I mean to say
1) It should show different image when the mouse pointer is over the button and out side of the button.

Also i have few more questions...
2) Remove the bar from the right hand pane and keep the button as it is. It should look similar to left hand pane.
3) For line functionality once a line is pressed, then i should be able to draw as many lines as possible.
4) Also check the collapse button directions. when i select open right hand pane button the button at the right hand pane is changing the direction and again i have to press the button then only at that time it is changing the direction and closing the pane.

5)Also when we right click image  properties and press right hand pane button it is not closing the pane for the first time for this we have to click twice to close the pane.

Plz provide me some sample code.

Plz find the below code.

Thanks for your reply,

Here i want to change the button image not the icon.
The example which you have provided in the link is for changing the icon but i need to change the image itself when user mouseover and mouseout the button.

I hope you got my point.
