Error on hover+mouseleave+mouseenter when they must change html content

Reported by: tonyhef Owned by: tonyhef
Priority: undecided Milestone: None
Component: unfiled Version: 1.8.0
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:

This is the code:


$(this).html('<img src="images/'+$(this).attr('name')+'_hov.png" />');



$(this).html('<img src="images/'+$(this).attr('name'+'.png" />');


function on mouseenter event works, but mouseleave event not works or not work well, in fact, this event is never invoked.

If, instead, I disable mouseenter event, mouseleave event works...

I found the problem with IE9, Chrome v20 and firefox v14, and jquery version 1.7.1 and the last (1.8.0)

This still happens when using html(). If you use .attr() it works fine.

$(this).find("img").attr("src", hoverimagename )

Not all that surprising, you're modifying the internal content of the element. The element that was mouseentered is removed so I guess the browser decides to not fire the mouseleave event. In any event, it's not something jQuery can or should "fix".
