graphic button in drupal

    I want to make a button on location on a php file that currently is just a hyperlink.
    Currently, the code segment appear in a browser with the text "Donate now", but I want it to be a paypal button instead.

    All this is part of a paypal module I have set up in Drupal. I have already figured out the proper way to use a .css file with this module to modify another aspect of it. And now I want to change the textual hyperlink to a paypal button.

    The line of code in question looks like this in the paypal_donations_single.tpl.php file:

    <a href="#" class="donation-submit-button"><?php echo t($variables['submit_value']); ?></a>

    The hyperlink text appears in the browser as "Donate now". This text appears in the .inc file includes\paypal_donations.admin.inc:

    $form[$type_key]['paypal_donations_' . $type_key . '_submit_value'] = array(
    '#title' => t('Form submit text'),
    '#type' => 'textfield',
    '#description' => t('The button text when someone sends the form'),
    '#default_value' => variable_get('paypal_donations_' . $type_key . '_submit_value', 'Donate now'),
    );


    This line of code is of particular interest to me:
    '#type' => 'textfield',

    Maybe there is an example somewhere that has a graphic as a '#type'.

    I have an extensive list of modules already and when I did a grep-style dos/cmd file findstr command I found many examples. The one that looks the most promising is:
    '#type' => 'image_button'

    and the accompanying code looks like this:
    $form['go'] = array(
    '#type' => 'image_button',
    '#src' => $options['image'],
    '#submit' => array('ctools_jump_menu_submit'),
    '#attributes' => array(
    'class' => array('ctools-jump-menu-button'),
    )


    based on what I can observe, I assume that all I need to do is change this:

    $form[$type_key]['paypal_donations_' . $type_key . '_submit_value'] = array(
    '#title' => t('Form submit text'),
    '#type' => 'textfield',
    '#description' => t('The button text when someone sends the form'),
    '#default_value' => variable_get('paypal_donations_' . $type_key . '_submit_value', 'Donate now'),
    );

    into this:

    $form[$type_key]['paypal_donations_' . $type_key . '_submit_value'] = array(
    '#title' => t('Form submit text'),
    '#type' => 'image_button',
    '#src' => $options['image'],
    '#description' => t('The button text when someone sends the form'),
    '#default_value' => variable_get('paypal_donations_' . $type_key . '_submit_value', 'Donate now'),
    );


    I only need to figure out how to best assign this '#src" variable. When I looked into the $options settings, the complexity and flexability reached new heights and I think now is a good time to ask for some help online with more experienced Drupal scripters and developers. Perhaps there is an easier way to assign this value a hardcoded path and image name.

    I looked around at the code to see how this array $options is used, I could not see where the 'image' part is assined to a graphic.

    I need some help, advice, and guidance.

    On the chance that I have been going down the wrong direction, I did a grep search on "donation-submit-button" since this is the class name of the html tag I am interested in:
    <a href="#" class="donation-submit-button"><?php echo t($variables['submit_value']); ?></a>

    But the only place it appears to be defined is in a .js file:

    paypal_donations\js\paypal_donations.js: $(".donation-submit-button").click(function(){
    paypal_donations\templates\paypal_donations_recurring.tpl.php: <a href="#" class="donation-submit-button"><?php echo t($variables['submit_value']); ?></a>
    paypal_donations\templates\paypal_donations_single.tpl.php: <a href="#" class="donation-submit-button"><?php echo t($variables['submit_value']); ?></a>

    and all that is denotated is the functionality, not the apparance:

    //When user click Donate now
    $(".donation-submit-button").click(function(){
    var post_form = false;
    //If any checkbox is checked set true
    if($('INPUT:checkbox:checked',$(this).closest('.donation-form')).length > 0)
    post_form = true;

    //If Other has value set true
    if($('INPUT:text',$(this).closest('.donation-form')).val() != '')
    post_form = true;

    if(post_form){
    $(this).closest('.donation-form').submit();
    }
    else{
    alert(Drupal.t('Please enter your donation amount'));
    }


    Pease help
