Here is my code:

HTML:

<select name="optionList" id="optionList" size="5">
<option value="1">1</option>
<option value="2">2</option>
<option value="3">3</option>
</select>


Jquery:

$(document).ready(function(event) {
$('#optionList').on('mouseenter', 'option', function(e) {

alert(option.mouseentered.value); // This does not work . What is the correct code ?


});
});
