Need event BEFORE jqGrid grabs mouseover

Posted on 2011-10-13

I use Microsoft's MVC unobtrusive javascript validation to handle validation with the jqGrid I use.

When the user mouses over the validation column, jqGrid displays the error message for that row. But I need to dril into that "tooltip" div and remove duplicate messages before jqgrid grabs the mouseover event and displays the message box.

How can I do that?

I could make bind my own mouseover event, but that would mean I need to know how to trigger the code being called currently (by unobtrusive javascript validation) after a mouseover event.

I do not know where that is.

    After page load, for validation controls, mouseover and mouseleave events are automatically attached.

    So what you have to do is:
    unbind those events and aging bind your customized event on which you can write / call your own code.


    For unbind:

    for adding event:

    Hope this helps you.
