Why IE doesn't detect events on dinamically created elements?

Hello I am creating div elements on the fly with javascript:
this.closeButto n = document.create Element('div');
this.closeButto n.setAttribute( 'id', this.name+ 'Close');
this.closeButto n.setAttribute( 'class', 'closeButton');
this.closeButto n.setAttribute( 'onclick', "anyFunction()" );
this.closeButto n.className="cl oseButton"
me.windowContro ls.appendChild( me.closeButton) ;
My first problem was that elements didn't reflect the class attributes
in IE although in Firefox worked fine. I solved this with:
"this.closeButt on.className="c loseButton"".

But now I have the same problem with the "onclick" event. In Firefox
works OK but IE doesnt detect the click although I can see that the
"outputHTML " is OK.

Does anybody know how to solve this?

Yes, that's because IE's implementation of the setAttribute method is
broken. Don't use it.

this.closeButto n.id = this.name + 'Close';
this.closeButto n.className = 'closeButton';
this.closeButto n.onclick = anyFunction;


this.closeButto n.onclick = function() {
/* ... */

Also, please don't use tabs on Usenet. Replace them with spaces -
preferably no more than four per level.
