Line 1: Line 1:
 +**(mouseout:​ // [[harlowe:​HookName|HookName]] or [[harlowe:​String|String]]//​) -> //​[[harlowe:​Changer|Changer]]//​**
  
 +A variation of [[harlowe:​click|(click:​)]] that, instead of showing the hook when the target is clicked, shows it
 +when the mouse pointer moves over it, and then leaves. The target is also styled differently,​ to denote this
 +hovering functionality.
 +
 +=== Rationale: ===
 +
 +[[harlowe:​click|(click:​)]] and [[harlowe:​link|(link:​)]] can be used to create links in your passage that reveal text or, in conjunction with
 +other macros, transform the text in myriad ways. This macro is exactly like [[harlowe:​click|(click:​)]],​ but rather than
 +making the target a link, it makes the target reveal the hook when the mouse stops hovering over it.
 +This is very similar to clicking, but is subtly different, and conveys a sense of "​pointing"​ at the element to
 +interact with it rather than "​touching"​ it. You can use this in your stories to give a dream-like or unearthly
 +air to scenes or places, if you wish.
 +
 +=== Details: ===
 +
 +This macro is subject to the same rules regarding the styling of its targets that [[harlowe:​click|(click:​)]] has, so
 +consult [[harlowe:​click|(click:​)]]'​s details to review them.
 +
 +This macro is not recommended for use in games or stories intended for use on touch devices, as
 +the concept of "​hovering"​ over an element doesn'​t really make sense with that input method.
