How to animate a change in backgroundColor using jQuery on mouseover

0 votes

I am trying to animate a change in backgroundColor using jQuery on mouseover.

I have checked some example and I seem to have it right, it works with other properties like fontSize, but with backgroundColor I get and "Invalid Property" js error. The element I am working with is a div.

$(".usercontent").mouseover(function() {
    $(this).animate({ backgroundColor: "olive" }, "slow");
});

Any ideas?

Hello @kartik,

Do it with CSS3-Transitions. Support is great (all modern browsers, even IE). With Compass and SASS this is quickly done:

#foo {background:red; @include transition(background 1s)}
#foo:hover {background:yellow}

Pure CSS:

#foo {
background:red;
-webkit-transition:background 1s;
-moz-transition:background 1s;
-o-transition:background 1s;
transition:background 1s
}
#foo:hover {background:yellow}

Hope it helps!!
Thank You!!

You don't need jquery. You can also do it without using it

.thumb {
background: #000;
transition: 0.5s;
-moz-transition: 0.5s;
-webkit-transition: 0.5s;
-o-transition: 0.5s;}

.thumb:hover {
background: #fff;
transition: 0.5s;
-moz-transition: 0.5s;
-webkit-transition: 0.5s;
-o-transition: 0.5s;}
