Script Callback in ASP.Net 2.0 events to handle

Discussion in 'ASP .Net' started by =?Utf-8?B?UGl0Y2Fpcm5pYQ==?=, May 25, 2005.

  1. I have a page that simply displays a list of links as anchors<a>. The links
    are generated from the database in a loop and written out to a table cell
    <td> inner html property. The anchors each have an onmouseover javascript
    that reads a short text description of the link, and writes it to a div that
    was hidden. It also moves the div using absolute positining to be slightly
    offset from the locus of the mouse click. The anchors each have an
    onmouseout javascript that should rehide the div. Everything works fine
    except for two problems.

    1. If the user swipes the mouse quickly over the list of links it usually
    fails to fire the last onmouseout event so the div is not hidden and instead,
    is dragged around the window with the mouse until it runs over another link.

    2. Whenever the callback returns the entire browser contents have a
    pronounced flickerthat is somwhat annoying.

    I am primarily concerned with the first problem. I want the div to remain
    as long as the mouse is hovering on the link but it absolutely has to go away
    when its not over one of the hyperlinks. IMHO if the mouse went over the the
    link and the mouseover was fired as evidenced by the appearance of the div
    contents, and the mouse no longer is over the link, then onmouseout should
    have fired, and it usually does. But scroll across 5 links in a hurry it
    should be five pairs of events fired, right?

    There is a similar and real cool out of band callback thing going on at
    netflix which you can see here if you rollover the links to the movies:

    Thanks for any help guys.
