#3190 closed bug (duplicate)

HOVER doesn't work on area tag in IE

Hi, In response to closed ticket #3183, mouseenter and mouseleave are the event fired by the HOVER function.

I am not the only one embarrassed http://groups.google.com/group/jquery-en/browse_thread/thread/8fefc900532f7727

If I write this


that doesn't work on IE if myElement is an AREA element.

But it works perfectly on Firefox or on other elements (DIV, IMG, A...)

An example of the usefulness of wanting to do this :

  • beautify tooltips on areas of the image
  • display more details in areas of an image when mouseover ...

Dup of #3030.

This is not the same issue as #3030. This issue is specifically regarding the <area> element. Setting mouseenter does not work in ie including jquery 1.6
