21559Re: Capturing mouse movements and mouse events
- Mar 2, 2009The technical jargon for the "mouseover", etc is "event listeners" and
alas IE uses a non-standard model, so you'll likely want to use a JS
library like http://www.jquery.com
Full mouse movement data is extremely voluminous. (Trust me, see my
MS work at http://www.surfmind.com/masters/screens/the_making_of_a_visualization.
I've been successfull at running code on MouseMove that compares the
DOM element to the previous "event target" and logging changes. That
work is written up in:
INSTRUMENTING THE DYNAMIC WEB Edmonds, A., White, R. , Morris, D.,
Drucker, S., Journal of Web Engineering, Vol. 6, No. 3, 2007.
This technique could be combined with my Google Analytics scripts for
capturing UI section to capture mouse moves with some compression. The
idea is to walk up the DOM from the element of interaction looking for
an attribute on an HTML element (ui="someblock") and only log
transitions between areas of interest. This also has the advantage of
being resolution independent.
