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: - States that currentTarget is the DOM element that triggered the event - States getAttribute can be used on DOM elements

Very clear explanation. Thanks cpradio.
