What is the difference between onclick and onclientclick in javascript?

What is the difference between onclick and onclientclick in javascript?

Both seem to be executing the functions on the client side.

<img id="myimage" onclick="changeImage()" onclientclick = "ChangeTitle()"
src="pic_bulboff.gif" width="100" height="180">

Please advise.

Thanks

As outlined on this page - http://forums.asp.net/t/1249580.aspx

OnClick will work on server side , OnClientClick will execute on client side before control passed to server.
 
If the client side code returns TRUE then it will go to server.
 
Generally programmers use onclientclick to validate the controls like textbox,etc.

AFAIK there is no onclientclick in javascript, it only exists in asp.net, where it gets rendered as onclick to the client i.e. in javascript?

What made you think it was a javascript event?

This event(Onclientclick ) does not exist for pure html img

The Onclientclick  is simply ignored as it is an invalid attribute. For all practical purposes you only need onclick to implement your JS click event.

Note: Onclientclick only exists for asp.net controls like buttons to allow you execute JS scripts /methods before running the event server code.
