loop mouseover event?

Hello All,

How can you continue the mouseover event while the mouse is still over
an object?
For example:
I put my mouse over a hyperlink and that triggers an object to move
10px to the right.
I want the object to continue moving 10px to the right every 1 second
untill i take my mouse off of the hyperlink.

Any ideas?

Use mouseover to start the object moving. Have a 'move the object'
function call itself sequentially using setTimeout each 1000ms. Use
mouseout to cancel the timer.

There are a number of different behaviours that can result from the
above depending upon the DOM structure of the particular elements and
whether you cancel bubbling/capture phases of event propigation.

<style type="text/css">
body {margin: 0; padding:0;}
#greyDiv {
width: 200px; height: 200px;
background-color: #ddd;
#redDiv {
width:3em; height:3em;
border:1px solid red;
position: absolute;
top: 0px; left: 0px;
<div id="greyDiv"
onmouseover="mo veIt.start('red Div');"
onmouseout="mov eIt.stop();"Mouseover me and the red guy will move...

<div id="redDiv">re d div</div>
<span id="x"></span>
<script type="text/javascript">
var moveIt = (function()
var t;
var cursorPos = 'out';
function moveLeft(o){
o.style.left = parseInt(o.styl e.left||'0') + 10 + 'px';
return ({
start: function(id){
cursorPos = 'over';
if (!t){
run : function(id) {
var obj = document.getEle mentById(id);
if ('over' == cursorPos){
t = setTimeout('mov eIt.run("'+id+' ")',1000);
} else {
if (t) {
clearTimeout(t) ;
t = false;
stop : function() {
cursorPos = 'out';

I am hosting a web browser ctl in a container that implements the IDocHostUIHandler interface. I'm using this to control the context menu.This works fine. Then, I added a mouseover event to the document in the documentComplete event handler. When I add this event handler, I loose all other navigation functions in the browser! right click, left click, it's all dead. (The mouseover works though)
