Datagrid onmouseover color change

Hi...I am working on a webpage using VB.net...i am using a data grid which displays data from SQL table. I am using <AlternatingItemStyle BackColor="Gainsboro"></AlternatingItemStyle> for different colors for alternate rows. Now I want to change the color of the row the mouse is over to some other color say Silver. I am doing this with the following code.
                If e.Item.ItemType = ListItemType.Item Or e.Item.ItemType = ListItemType.AlternatingItem Then
                    If Not IsNothing(e.Item.DataItem) Then
                        e.Item.Attributes.Add("onmouseover", "this.style.backgroundColor='#DDEEFF'")
                        e.Item.Attributes.Add("onmouseout", "this.style.backgroundColor='white'")
                    End If
                End If
The problem is once the mouse leaves the row i am not able to get the previous color of the row. Can someone help me how to get the original color back. Thank You.

If you're using different color for Alternating Item then you need to Split your function like following

                If e.Item.ItemType = ListItemType.Item Then
                        e.Item.Attributes.Add("onmouseover", "this.style.backgroundColor='#DDEEFF'")
                        e.Item.Attributes.Add("onmouseout", "this.style.backgroundColor='white'")      'Normal Item Color
                End If
                If e.Item.ItemType = ListItemType.AlternatingItem Then
                        e.Item.Attributes.Add("onmouseover", "this.style.backgroundColor='#DDEEFF'")
                        e.Item.Attributes.Add("onmouseout", "this.style.backgroundColor='Gainsboro'") 'Alternating Item Color
                End If
