    slidepanel mouseover/hover help

    Alright, this might be a easy fix, but I can't seem to get it to work.
    I have it so when you mouse over the "test1" tab, it drops the panel down like intended.
    The only way I can get it back up is if I mouseover the same tab (or I could make a click function or others), but what I'm interested in achieving is where the user moves their cursor out of the panel that just dropped. In doing so, the entire panel would close back up in its original state.

    I thought maybe it would be another mouseover command, that I had to define it to the panel that shows up after the initial mouseover, but I think I'm wrong. At least, I couldn't get it wrong, if anyone has any suggestions or a solution it'd be most appreciated.

    <title>test slide panel</title>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="jquery.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
            $(this).toggleClass("active"); return false;
    <style type="text/css">
    body {
        margin: 0 auto;
        padding: 0;
        width: 570px;
        font: 75%/120% Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    a:focus {
        outline: none;
    #panel {
        background: grey;
        height: 200px;
        display: none;
    .slide {
        margin: 0;
        padding: 0;
        background-color: red;
    .drop_slide {
        background: url(white-arrow.gif) no-repeat right -50px;
        text-align: center;
        width: 144px;
        height: 31px;
        padding: 10px 10px 0 0;
        margin: 0 auto;
        display: block;
        font: bold 120%/100% Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
        color: #fff;
        text-decoration: none;
    .active {
        background-position: right 12px;
    <div id="panel">
        test for links or something
    <p class="slide"><a href="#" class="drop_slide">test1</a></p>
    This is as close as I can get it with hover, but its not working exactly right either ;;

        function slide() {
          return false;
        $(".drop_slide").hover(slide, slide);

    You could just use this plugin called clueTip:


    It's got a property called mouseOutClose which does what you're describing.
