Invoking MouseOver using link_to tag?

Hi,

How can we trigger a JavaScript built in function from a <%= link_to %>
ie. i have the below statement in my view. I want to invoke a JavaScript
function on “MouseOver” of this below text (‘TestingMouseOverEvents’).

<%= link_to “TestingMouseOverEvents” , :controller => “login”, :action
=> “logout”%>

Note: The controller and action should also be there as above. ie invoke
the controller function on click of the link and invoke a local JS
function on MouseOver of the text ?

On a normal href we do something like this rt? for invoking the
onMouseover and onMouseout?. But i want to do the same thing but with
<%= link_to %> as above ?

TestingMouseOverEvents

Thank You
Dinesh

I guess we can do it as below…

<%= link_to “Test” , “http://www.google.com” , :onMouseover =>
“alert(‘hello’)” , :controller => “login”, :action => “logout”%>

Thanks,
Dinesh

<%= link_to “TestingMouseOverEvents” , {:controller => “login”, :action
=> “logout”}, {“onmouseover” => “jscode”, “onmouseout” => “jscode”}%>

Having some difficulty doing this, I want to run a .rjs template on the
mouseover event to show a hidden div, (and another on the mouse off to
hide it) tho 'cause I have a block in to hide visible menus when one is
removed I don’t think I can put my stcript in the link.

Basically I can’t find a way to reference the RJS template as part of
the mouseover event.

Or better yet, don’t. Use an external
JS file and set the handlers there. JavaScript works best when it’s
kept completely separate from HTML.

Best,
