GlobalEventHandlers.onmouseleave

The onmouseleave property sets and returns the event handler for the mouseleave event.

Syntax

element.onmouseleave = handlerFunction;
var handlerFunction = element.onmouseleave;

handlerFunction should be either null or a JavaScript function specifying the handler for the event.

Notes

See the DOM event handlers page for information on working with on... handlers.

The mouseleave event is fired when a pointing device (usually a mouse) is moved off the element that has the listener attached.

See the mouseleave event documentation for more information about the event.
