Event Attribute onMouseOut

onMouseOut is an event attribute, it takes JavaScript-code as a value. The code will be executed when:

  • The user moves their mouse or pointing device out of the confines of the element.

Example

In this example, the user will receive a messagebox saying "You moved your mouse out of this text", after moving the mouse/pointing device anywhere over the text "Hover over me then move the mouse away"

<a onmouseout="alert('You moved your mouse out of this text')">Hover over me then move the mouse away</a>

Controversy

As this event requires the user to move the mouse, users with impaired motor skills or no mouse may find this difficult or impossible.
