Description Antoine Quint 2012-11-27 08:44:44 PST
We're failing the Opera-submitted test at http://w3c-test.org/html/tests/submission/Opera/media/interfaces/TrackEvent/createEvent.html.

We fail to throw the NOT_SUPPORTED_ERR error when calling document.createEvent('TrackEvent'). I believe this is a broader WebCore issue that we don't follow the latest DOM spec that this method should only be used for legacy events. See http://dom.spec.whatwg.org/#dom-document-createevent.

http://dom.spec.whatwg.org/#dom-document-createevent says that we should be able to create any sort of supported event via this API.

Adam, I think you're misreading the algorithm. (Though I don't really understand why it's specced that way.)
Comment 4 Adam Barth 2012-11-27 12:40:25 PST
Ah, yes.  Thanks.  That's quite different from the behavior we have currently.
Comment 5 Chris Rebert 2016-02-25 11:26:31 PST
Still not spec compliant.
Relevant, more general DOM testcase: http://w3c-test.org/dom/nodes/Document-createEvent.html

Mass move bugs into the DOM component.
