MS Edge - onclick="..." not triggered

MS Edge - onclick="..." not triggered

I have a very simple snippet


<input class="jlSubmitForm" type="button" onmouseover="'pointer';" name="Submit" value="Log in!" onclick="submitForm('1');" style="width: 80%; border: 1px solid rgb(0, 0, 0); cursor: pointer;"> 

some where in my .js file, I have


function submitForm(strKey) {

works in every browser except for Win-10 MS-Edge.

I have jquery based slide and the slide works fine yet, onclick() does not.

What am I missing here?

RE: MS Edge - onclick="..." not triggered

Your code works for me as is in Edge.

Are you sure your js file is getting read correctly?

Are you getting any JS errors?

You can use Edge's developer console to see if you are getting any errors. Just hit the f12 key on your keyboard while in the Edge browser to bring it up. Click on "Console" to see if you have any JS errors.

RE: MS Edge - onclick="..." not triggered

It turns out, the error on my page were due to 404 error - I was pointing to a CSS document which I had gotten rid of but did not fix my header ...

I removed the link tags and after page loaded without errors, all works fine!
