Hi.
I’m using this wonderful (and straight forward!) css to manage some user interaction in my next template.
The problem is that is not supported on IE nor Opera. http://caniuse.com/pointer-events

Anyone has reached an elegant solution for this?

Thanks in advance!

Hi. What are you trying to do with it? Disable the click function on an anchor?

Is not an anchor but an image. But yeah, that’s what i have.
The code is bit complex to post it here, but let’s resume: there is an image inside a div that opens some content on click function. That content has a close button. Right now i’m using pointer-events “none” applied to the image once clicked, and reseted to “auto” when close button is triggered. It works perfectly on FF and Chrome.

Why not toggle state with jquery? Other than that you cannot do anything.

@duotive – Toggle doesn’t work for me in this case, is not a button that itself open&close. Is an image that displays besides the opened content, and it does some other things apart from opening that content. That’s why i want to disable the possible user click on it again once opened. Uhmmm. i’m afraid i’ll need to write a huge function for the f* ie. :(

@codestar – yeah, i saw it. Can’t understand why they don’t support it, not even on their latest releases, pretty useful, btw.

How about using a wrap around the image with z-index/transparent png/gif if IE.

Not sure if that is along the lines of what your trying to do, but I had wrong z-index’s on something I’m working on which made the below content not clickable.

Earlier this year I had this same problem and discovered that when testing for the pointer-event feature, Opera was reporting that it supported it even though it did not. Not sure if this is still true, just thought I’d mention it in case it helps.
