Description

Link elements aren't matched when the onclick attribute value is searched. An exception is thrown in some cases.

Here's some output from my test: link NOT found using selector "a[onclick=bar()]" link NOT found using selector "a[onclick='bar()']" exception caught using selector "a[onclick*=bar]" - TypeError: z.indexOf is not a function exception caught using selector "a[onclick*='bar']" - TypeError: z.indexOf is not a function

This was asked before. Inline event handlers are not good practices, and we provide a clean way of binding events unobstrusively.

Retrieving them as attributes has different side effects among the browsers. IE returns functions, while FF strings. So, IE is likely to cause unexpected behaviors when these approaches.

Try to refactor your code instead. Use a class or unobstrusive binding.
