View Full Version : onmouseover/onmouseout

I want to use this on my page:

<td onmouseover="style.backgroundColor=#990000" onmouseout="style.backgroundColor=#003366">

But I do not want to write the color of the onmouseout (#003366). I'm looking for some script to change the color back to the original color (#990000) when the mouse moves away from the cell.

Is this possible?

First you should wrap the color definition between single quotes ('')

Then, leave the quotes for the onmouseout empty, so it takes the default color onmouseout.

<td onmouseover="style.backgroundColor='#990000'" onmouseout="style.backgroundColor=''">
