Change the image source on rollover using jQuery


Question

I have a few images and their rollover images. Using jQuery, I want to show/hide the rollover image when the onmousemove/onmouseout event happen. All my image names follow the same pattern, like this:

Original Image: Image.gif

Rollover Image: Imageover.gif

I want to insert and remove the "over" portion of image source in the onmouseover and onmouseout event, respectively.

How can I do it using jQuery?

To set up on ready:

$(function() {
    $("img")
        .mouseover(function() { 
            var src = $(this).attr("src").match(/[^\.]+/) + "over.gif";
            $(this).attr("src", src);
        })
        .mouseout(function() {
            var src = $(this).attr("src").replace("over.gif", ".gif");
            $(this).attr("src", src);
        });
});

For those that use url image sources:

$(function() {
        $("img")
            .mouseover(function() {
               var src = $(this).attr("src");
               var regex = /_normal.svg/gi;
               src = this.src.replace(regex,'_rollover.svg');
               $(this).attr("src", src);

            })
            .mouseout(function() {
               var src = $(this).attr("src");
               var regex = /_rollover.svg/gi;
               src = this.src.replace(regex,'_normal.svg');
               $(this).attr("src", src);

            });
    });

I know you're asking about using jQuery, but you can achieve the same effect in browsers that have JavaScript turned off using CSS:

#element {
    width: 100px; /* width of image */
    height: 200px; /* height of image */
    background-image: url(/path/to/image.jpg);
}

#element:hover {
    background-image: url(/path/to/other_image.jpg);
}

There's a longer description here

Even better, however, is to use sprites: simple-css-image-rollover

If you have more than one image and you need something generic that doesn't depend on a naming convention.

HTML

<img data-other-src="big-zebra.jpg" src="small-cat.jpg">
<img data-other-src="huge-elephant.jpg" src="white-mouse.jpg">
<img data-other-src="friendly-bear.jpg" src="penguin.jpg">

JavaScript

$('img').bind('mouseenter mouseleave', function() {
    $(this).attr({
        src: $(this).attr('data-other-src') 
        , 'data-other-src': $(this).attr('src') 
    })
});

    /* Teaser image swap function */
    $('img.swap').hover(function () {
        this.src = '/images/signup_big_hover.png';
    }, function () {
        this.src = '/images/signup_big.png';
    });

A generic solution that doesn't limit you to "this image" and "that image" only may be to add the 'onmouseover' and 'onmouseout' tags to the HTML code itself.

HTML

<img src="img1.jpg" onmouseover="swap('img2.jpg')" onmouseout="swap('img1.jpg')" />

JavaScript

function swap(newImg){
  this.src = newImg;
}

Depending on your setup, maybe something like this would work better (and requires less HTML modification).

HTML

<img src="img1.jpg" id="ref1" />
<img src="img3.jpg" id="ref2" />
<img src="img5.jpg" id="ref3" />

JavaScript / jQuery

// Declare Arrays
  imgList = new Array();
  imgList["ref1"] = new Array();
  imgList["ref2"] = new Array();
  imgList["ref3"] = new Array();

//Set values for each mouse state
  imgList["ref1"]["out"] = "img1.jpg";
  imgList["ref1"]["over"] = "img2.jpg";
  imgList["ref2"]["out"] = "img3.jpg";
  imgList["ref2"]["over"] = "img4.jpg";
  imgList["ref3"]["out"] = "img5.jpg";
  imgList["ref3"]["over"] = "img6.jpg";

//Add the swapping functions
  $("img").mouseover(function(){
    $(this).attr("src", imgList[ $(this).attr("id") ]["over"]);
  }

  $("img").mouseout(function(){
    $(this).attr("src", imgList[ $(this).attr("id") ]["out"]);
  }

$('img.over').each(function(){
    var t=$(this);
    var src1= t.attr('src'); // initial src
    var newSrc = src1.substring(0, src1.lastIndexOf('.'));; // let's get file name without extension
    t.hover(function(){
        $(this).attr('src', newSrc+ '-over.' + /[^.]+$/.exec(src1)); //last part is for extension   
    }, function(){
        $(this).attr('src', newSrc + '.' + /[^.]+$/.exec(src1)); //removing '-over' from the name
    });
});

You may want to change the class of images from first line. If you need more image classes (or different path) you may use

$('img.over, #container img, img.anotherOver').each(function(){

and so on.

It should work, I didn't test it :)
