    events and getAttribute

    I know event.currentTarget works with getAttribute, but I can't find a reference that says that. Is there one? If not why? I so, where should I look?

    The reason event.currentTarget works with getAttribute is because currentTarget is a DOM element and DOM element have access to getAttribute.

    Sources:
    http://www.w3schools.com/jsref/event_currenttarget.asp - States that currentTarget is the DOM element that triggered the event
    http://www.w3schools.com/jsref/met_e...tattribute.asp - States getAttribute can be used on DOM elements
