Mouseover event in a transparent division in IE

Thursday, July 12th, 2007 By Nikhil

I had this problem  where , if you had a mouseover event on a division (DIV)  and that division , for some good reason had to be transparent(as In my case, where it was required to display some tags over an image on mouseover of this transparent division),  IE failed to trigger the mouseover event ( Worked fine in FireFox).

Tried several options … many of which was just a desperate attempt to get the event to fire in IE. One of the sensible ones, that I thought might work was to set a background color to the division and set the opacity to zero … Well! dint work!

The final solution which seemed  to work and not disturb the functionality I required was to put a one pixel  repeated/transparent background image in that division

… Silly! but now IE seems happy.
