The below code works for both ctrl-click and left-click in Firefox but only the ctrl-click is recognised in IE7:

$('#tsTable').on('click', 'span.debtor', function(e) {
  if(e.ctrlKey) {
    alert('ctrl-click!');
  } else if(e.which==1) {
    alert('left click!');
  }
  return false;
});

What do I need to change to make IE recognise the left-click (without the ctrl key)?

Use this code:

$('#element').mousedown(function(event) {
    switch (event.which) {
        case 1:
            alert('Left mouse button pressed');
            break;
        case 2:
            alert('Middle mouse button pressed');
            break;
        case 3:
            alert('Right mouse button pressed');
            break;
        default:
            alert('You have a strange mouse');
    }
});

Open in new window

Thank you -- "mousedown", not "click" works!
