Does anyone know why I can not use the onmouseover onmouseout javascript function on a div tag in asp.net.

I have used this method for years but in VS 2003 it tell me that onmouseover onmouseout is not an element of the div tag.

Oh by the way, just to add, the events do nothing in the browser. They do no do any mouse over or onmouseout.

I use VS 2003 and till working correctly, here is my example code. My VS 2003 displayed IntelliSense for onmouseout and onmouseover of <div> tag.

<%@ Page language="c#" Codebehind="WebForm1.aspx.cs" AutoEventWireup="false" Inherits="Test1.WebForm1" %>
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" >
            <meta name="GENERATOR" Content="Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 7.1">
            <meta name="CODE_LANGUAGE" Content="C#">
            <meta name="vs_defaultClientScript" content="JavaScript">
            <meta name="vs_targetSchema" content="http://schemas.microsoft.com/intellisense/ie5">
            <script language="javascript">
                  function out(){
                        alert("Mouse out");
                  function over(){
                        alert("Mouse over");
      <body MS_POSITIONING="GridLayout">
            <form id="Form1" method="post" runat="server">
                  <div onmouseout="out();" onmouseover="over();">Test Mouse Out/Over</div>

Dungla, that seemed to work fine, maybe it was something I was doing.

Thank you for that.
