Pointer-events

Post by RSteinwand » Fri Jan 06, 2017 9:53 am

Code: Select all

a[data-tooltip]:before{pointer-events:none}
The "pointer-events" property is considered an experimental property. Some browsers may not support this property or may have only partial support for it. Browsers that have at least partial support may support this property in inconsistent ways which may further change in the future.
Hi Albert.

Looks like pretty good browser support for pointer-events (except Opera Mini, which doesn't support a lot of stuff). http://caniuse.com/#feat=pointer-events

No mention of "experimental" on MDN. https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/doc ... ter-events

I wonder if it can be removed completely? I suspect it's primarily used for hover notices when a mouse is used.

Thank you.

I've replaced the experimental message with this new message:
The "pointer-events" property is supported by current versions of all major browsers, including IE11. However, IE10 and Opera Mini do not support this property. This message is displayed only once.
