The event.preventDefault() method stops the default action of an element from happening.

For example: Prevent a submit button from submitting a form. Prevent a link from following the URL.

I'm trying to call the hover event of the buttons placed on a tile when I hover over the tile, using jQuery. However, it is not working. This is the code I'm using

<script >
$( "#tile1" ).hover(function() {



I've linked with jQuery separately in the head:

<script src=""></script>

Can anyone point out what the problem might be?
