Definition and Usage

The mouseleave event occurs when the mouse pointer leaves the selected element.

The mouseleave() method triggers the mouseleave event, or attaches a function to run when a mouseleave event occurs.

Note: Unlike the mouseout event, the mouseleave event only triggers when the mouse pointer leaves the selected elements. The mouseout event is triggered if a mouse pointer leaves any child elements as well as the selected element.  See the example at the end of the page for a demonstration.

Tip: This event is often used together with the mouseenter event.


Syntax

Trigger the mouseleave event for the selected elements:

$(selector).mouseleave() Try it

Attach a function to the mouseleave event:

$(selector).mouseleave(function) Try it

Parameter Description
function Optional. Specifies the function to run when the mouseleave event is triggered
