Stop swiper slide autoplay on mouse enter and start autoplay on mouse leave

How to stop swiper slide autoplay on mouse enter and start autoplay on mouse leave? I have tried .stopAutoplay() and .startAutoplay() function but not worked for me.

thank you here is code. and i face console error

Uncaught TypeError: swiper .startAutoplay is not a function

 var swiper = new Swiper('.swiper-container', {
    pagination: '.swiper-pagination',
    paginationClickable: true,
    nextButton: '.swiper-button-next',
    prevButton: '.swiper-button-prev',
    spaceBetween: 0,
    loop: true,
    effect: 'slide',
    longSwipes: true,
    autoplay:2000,
    autoplayDisableOnInteraction:true,
});


$(".swiper-container").mouseenter(function(){
    swiper.stopAutoplay();
});

$(".swiper-container").mouseleave(function(){
    swiper.startAutoplay();
});

Answer

You need to use the option disableOnInteraction: true rather than binding the events yourself see here for documentation.

Optionally you can use the following for autoplay start stop

  • swiper.autoplay.start();

  • swiper.autoplay.stop();

Edit

Your mistake is how you are getting the instance for swiper. see below for demo

$(document).ready(function() {
  new Swiper('.swiper-container', {
    speed: 400,
    spaceBetween: 100,
    autoplay: true,
    disableOnInteraction: true,
  });
  var mySwiper = document.querySelector('.swiper-container').swiper

  $(".swiper-container").mouseenter(function() {
    mySwiper.autoplay.stop();
    console.log('slider stopped');
  });

  $(".swiper-container").mouseleave(function() {
    mySwiper.autoplay.start();
    console.log('slider started again');
  });
});
.swiper-slide {
  text-align: center;
}
