can't cancel event in IE

What I am attempting to do is cancel an event in IE inside of my event
handler, but the handler keeps getting called:
for example if I do
<div id="foo">
<div id="test">test text</div>
</div>

and assign an event by doing:
document.attach Event("onclick" ,functionName)

IE seems to be firing the event twice. Is there a way to stop it?

the function looks like:

function functionName(e) {
if (!e) e = window.event; // IE event model
//do something then:

if (e.stopPropagat ion) e.stopPropagati on(); // DOM Level 2
else e.cancelBubble = true; // IE
}

// Now prevent any default action.
if (event.preventD efault) event.preventDe fault(); // DOM Level
2
else event.returnVal ue = false;

}

Your code looks OK to me (although your feature test could be better).
Could it be that you call document.attach Event() twice? Also note that
`document' does not refer to an element object.

Maybe it's not me. I posted a question earlier about not getting a function call right. Well, now I'm trying to write some very simple code, and I can't get ANYTHING to work. It won't even display a simple message box... Same form I had in my previous post. It's got about 10 fields on it. It is linked right to the table containing the data, no queries or anything. It's data entry property is set to yes. It's used to input info...

Hi, I'm trying to use c# to pop up a dialog box when a user attempts to close word to prompt them if they want to exit or cancel (obviously other stuff needs to happen based on their selection but that's the gist of it.)

I have a tabbed ap, and I want to provide a message and give the user a chance to change there mind if they try to change tab pages in the middle of an update (otherwise just cancel the update and allow the change.) I thought the TabPage.Validating event would be the thing, and as long as buttons and tab page changes are done by mouse clicks, it seems to work fine. But if I use a hot key to press "Cancel" or "Save", it seems to raise the...

In a winform with a datagridview using cellvalidating event but also have a save button that is located on a tablebindignnavigator. The behaviour I observe is that if the cellvalidating issues a cancel = true after the save button has been clicked, the update statements in the click event of the save button still occur but nothing gets saved, which is OK. Except that I pop a message box in the click event after the update statements have...

I have a form w/ a textbox and Cancel button on it. I have a routine to handle textbox.validating, and I have the form setup so the Cancel button is the Cancel button. WHen the user clicks on the cancel button, the textbox.validating is being called. I don't want it to be since they are exiting the screen the validation doesn't have to be done. How can I do that.

Does it make sense to put this If e.Cancel Then Exit Sub at the beginning of form closing events so if the user cancels the app's exiting in one Closing routine he will not be asked again by another when its form Closing routine is run? I guess what I'm asking is will that work. If one form sets e.cancelled to true will e.cancel be true when the next form receives a closing event?

Hi there, I have a UserControl with a couple of textboxes and a couple of buttons ("Save" and "Cancel"). The Click event for this buttons is in the UserControl's codebehind of course, so here's my question. Once the UserControl is dropped onto the container page, how can I perform some action on the codebehind of the container page from the codebehind of the UserControl? For instance, suppose that the UserControl is dropped inside one...

I think I'm losing my mind, granted it is kind of late here so... I'm trying to do some simple validation on the client as keys are pressed. The validation routine works well enough however I can't seem to cancel the event should the validation fail. Well more accurately, I can't cancel the keyup event. When I hook the following routine to the keydown event it works well and an invalidation cancels the event. I'm hooking the...

Is there a cancel argument for cancelling if you want to check or uncheck a checkbox? In the checkChanged event of a checkbox I ask the user if they are sure they want to check/uncheck something.

If No then when entering the click event I don't perform various actions. Is...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
