SVG mouseover event not changing circle Fill color

VS 2017 / ASP.NET / VB.NET code behind / SVG

The current working code has SVG circles that change color to show progress based on the color hex values set in the code behind.  Also, some circles will show an AJAX ModalPopupExtender containing data when clicked on.  All that is working fine.

The goal of what I am trying to add is if a Boolean is set to true in the code behind (indicating data to view exists), I want the circle to change to a lighter color on "mouseover" and return to it's normal color on "mouseout".

UPDATE: See my next post on problem description.  The events are firing -  the colors just won't change.

I have not gotten to figuring out how to implement to "IF" conditional for the hovering effect or not.

I cannot even get it simply change circle color on the "mouseover" to a hard coded value. Nothing happens as if the mouseover event is not firing.

For simplicity, I am only showing the code pertaining to the circles functioning.
Note - the arrayState code sets the circle base on variables from the code behind.
"circle4" is the one I am trying to get the hover effect on.

leakim971, thanks for the response.

While I was waiting on a response I tried a few things.  

I changed the "circle4" line like this:  (added events)
<circle class="datacircle" id = "circle4" runat="server" cx = "430" cy = "50" r = "36" onmouseover="mouseOverEff()" onmouseout="mouseOutEff()"/>     

Open in new window


And I changed the JavaScript like this:
<script type="text/javascript" > 
   var dcircles = document.getElementById("circle4");
   var flag = "<%= blnEngRecs %>";
   //alert( flag );

   function mouseOverEff() {   
                      
     if (flag == "True") { 
        //alert( "hit!" );

        dcircles.setAttribute("fill", "blue");

        //dcircles.style.color = "blue"
        //arrState(4) = "blue"
        //Response.Write("#circle4 { fill:   " & arrState(stepNum) & ";}" & vbCrLf)
        //Response.Write("#circle4 { fill: ""blue"";}" & vbCrLf)
        //Response.Write("circle4 { fill: 'blue';}" & vbCrLf)
                            }
    } 

    function mouseOutEff() {  
       //alert( "out!" );
       //dcircles.setAttribute("fill", "red");
       //dcircles.style.color = "<%= strEngnrd %>";

       dcircles.setAttribute("fill", "<%= strEngnrd %>");

     }
</script>

Open in new window

I added the "alerts" and they displayed.  So this shows my events are indeed firing (I didn't think they were before).   The problem is the color is just not changing on the circle4.  

So as a test, I removed the code that is needed to set my colors:
      /* Array code is what changes the colors of the circles and lines */ 
      <%
           Dim arrState(8) As String
           arrState(1) = strOrderAck
           arrState(2) = strDrawSub
           arrState(3) = strDrawApp
           arrState(4) = strEngnrd
           arrState(5) = strMfgStart
           arrState(6) = strMfgComp
           arrState(7) = strShipRdy
           arrState(8) = strShipped
           Dim stepNum As Integer
           For stepNum = 1 To UBound(arrState)
              Response.Write("#circle" & stepNum & " { fill:   " & arrState(stepNum) & ";}" & vbCrLf)
              Response.Write("#line"   & stepNum & " { stroke: " & arrState(stepNum) & "; stroke-width:8;}" & vbCrLf)
          
           Next
      %>
     /* End of Array code */

Open in new window

Then on circle4 the color blue would show onmouseover and the original color onmouse out (the uncomment code in functions) .   So my initial color code is preventing the temporary code for mouseover / mouseout from showing.  You can see the commented out code that I tried to no avail.  

I need the code that sets the initial color and it works perfect.   Any idea what temporary mouseover / mouseout code I need that will allow it to change the circle color just for mouse over?

Thanks,

Hey Zvonko,

Thanks for that reply.  I believe what you are suggestion would make it change the color every time there is a hover.  I want it to be conditional.  I only want the hover effect if my Boolean is True (meaning I have data to show).  Otherwise, show no hover effect.

Here is what I am trying.  The event fires correctly, but the hover effect never shows.
This is my latest attempt.   It gets the run time error "Error: 'Response' is undefined":
<div style="margin: 5px; padding-left: 50px">
     <div style="position: relative; height:0; width: 100%; margin:0;  padding: 0; padding-bottom: 12%; overflow: hidden" >  
        <svg viewBox="0, 0, 1200, 140" preserveAspectRatio="xMinYMin meet"  style="position: absolute" >

                              .label {
                                pointer-events: none;
                              }
                     </style>
...

    <circle class="datacircle" id = "circle4" runat="server" cx = "430" cy = "50" r = "36" onmouseover="mouseOverEff()" onmouseout="mouseOutEff()"/>    

...

     <script type="text/javascript" >  

        var dcircles = document.getElementById("circle4");
        var flag = "<%= blnEngRecs %>";

        function mouseOverEff() {
           if (flag == "True") {
              Response.Write("#circle4 { fill: blue;}" & vbCrLf)
                               }
                                }

       function mouseOutEff() {                 
            dcircles.setAttribute("fill", "<%= strEngnrd %>");
                              }
     </script>


      </svg>
   </div>

I have also tried (with no luck) the following:
dcircles.setAttribute("fill", "blue");
dcircles.style.color = "blue"
arrState(4) = "blue"
Response.Write("#circle4 { fill:   " & arrState(stepNum) & ";}" & vbCrLf)
Response.Write("#circle4 { fill: ""blue"";}" & vbCrLf)
Response.Write("circle4 { fill: 'blue';}" & vbCrLf)

Any idea what is the correct syntax to put in my "function mouseOverEff()" to cause the color change on hover (when the conditional is met)?

Thanks,

leakim971, thanks for the response, but I no longer have an issue with the event firing.  It is firing just fine - I tested it with "Alerts" and it does it conditionally.   The issue is the color is not changing on mouseover.

If you copy the code below into https://codepen.io/pen/?editors=1100
you can see that the events fire and the colors change.  However, in codepen the "style / arrState" code does not execute.  In my actual VS ASP.NET web form app the  "style / arrState" code functions just fine and colors the circles correctly.  However, the "dcircles.setAttribute("fill", "blue");" code (as well as the " dcircles.setAttribute("fill", "green");" code) in the script Functions() are completely disregarded and the colors of the circle4 never changes on hover.

So the question remains.  What is it in VS that is preventing the color code change from taking effect?

Thanks,
leakim971

the lines I'm talking about are not about the firing but about your question :

Any idea what is the correct syntax to put in my "function mouseOverEff()" to cause the color change on hover (when the conditional is met)?

You mix too much things cross together.

My proposal has nothing to do with JavaScript events.

So my solution does say, if you want to have the fill color change on hover on circle4 then inject my code, otherwise do not inject that code for circle4.

Your complications come from mixing the server side code injection with JavaScript event handling. That cannot work.



Zvonko

And if you still want to do it by JavaScript and not with sytle injection then you can do it like this:

Zvonko,
Sorry I was not familiar with server side code injection and what you were trying to tell me, but I understand now.
Thank you for explaining what I was doing wrong and giving the details on how to do the solution 2 ways.

I am going to use the server side code injection method in the Style section.

In case others want to see both solutions that work for me, I am including them below.
NOTE:  I have removed the hard-coded colors and am using variables from my Code Behind.

Server side code injection in Style section.  (Solution that I am using):
<html>
<head runat="server">

        <svg viewBox="0, 0, 1200, 140" preserveAspectRatio="xMinYMin meet"  style="position: absolute" >      
            <style type="text/css">

              arrState(3) = strDrawApp
              arrState(4) = strEngnrd
              arrState(5) = strMfgStart
              arrState(6) = strMfgComp
              arrState(7) = strShipRdy
              arrState(8) = strShipped
              Dim stepNum As Integer
              For stepNum = 1 To UBound(arrState)
              Response.Write("#circle" & stepNum & " { fill:   " & arrState(stepNum) & ";}" & vbCrLf)
              Response.Write("#line"   & stepNum & " { stroke: " & arrState(stepNum) & "; stroke-width:8;}" & vbCrLf)

JavaScript version that would also work instead:
