Definition and Usage

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

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

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

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


Syntax

Trigger the mouseout event for the selected elements:

$(selector).mouseout() Try it

Attach a function to the mouseout event:

$(selector).mouseout(function) Try it

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