Javascript attach events through an object

I am trying to dynamically create events through a user clicking on the row.

I load the click function in jQuery like this:

I keep getting an error that the element passed is not an object.

Is there a better way to create these events?

Do I use attachEvent or addEventListener??

thanks tons for the help.

    $('#jqAOITab').on('click', 'tr:gt(1)', function () {
        var c = new IPImpactControl($(this));

function IPImpactControl(elem) {
    this.ElemTR = elem;

IPImpactControl.prototype = {

    attachEvents: function () {
        var that = this;
        [b]addEventListener(this.ElemTR, 'mouseleave', function () { that.Leave(); });
[/b]        console.log(this.ElemTR);

    Leave: function () {
        var that = this;

Why do you attach element with simple javascript instead jQuery?

$(this).on("mouseleave", ".child", function(event) {
    // do something

I do get the TR object when doing this

    $('#jqAOITab').on('click', 'tr:gt(1)', function () {
        var c = new IPImpactControl($(this));

its the line that throws.
 addEventListener(this.ElemTR, 'mouseleave', function () { that.Leave(); });

if I comment it out and

it shows up..

What is the purpose of all of this?
Could answer my previous question?

Why are you trying to use addEventListener? You're using jQuery so use it as leakim971 has indicated in his first post
