Surely a staple to event attachment! Regardless to what version you use written by whatever developer, it does what it says it does. And of course as you might of known, I’ve put together quite a handy version myself recently of addEvent() with some help from the contest winner and Mark Wubben along with a few minor syntax adjustments. But just to be fair to Scott Andrew, here is the original that started it all.

  1. function addEvent(elm, evType, fn, useCapture) {
  2. if (elm.addEventListener) {
  3. elm.addEventListener(evType, fn, useCapture);
  4. return true;
  5. }
  6. else if (elm.attachEvent) {
  7. var r = elm.attachEvent('on' + evType, fn);
  8. return r;
  9. }
  10. else {
  11. elm['on' + evType] = fn;
  12. }
  13. }
