Javascript Question

Can I remove inline event handlers using jQuery?

I have some HTML with an

onclick
attribute. I want to override that attribute using jQuery. Is there any way to remove the click handler using jQuery? Using unbind doesn't work.

Answer

Try the .removeAttr() function:

$(function() {
    $('a').removeAttr('onclick');
});

Once you've got rid of the onclick attribute you could attach your own click handler.
