Browser Compatibility Check BugIe11ScriptAttachEvent


The element.attachEvent method was removed in Internet Explorer 11.


Use the W3 standard addEventListener() instead, using feature detection to support old versions of IE:

 if (obj.addEventListener) { // use W3 DOM method if available (Chrome, Firefox, IE9+, Opera 7+) obj.addEventListener('click', myClick, false); } else if (obj.attachEvent) { // fallback for IE8 and earlier obj.attachEvent('onclick', myClick); } else { // fallback to DOM level 0 (only allows single event handler per event for each element) obj.onclick = myClick; }
