I'm trying to get ClientPeoplePicker control with following code.

    function setCPP(userAccountName, controlName) {
    var peoplePickerDiv = $("[id$='ClientPeoplePicker'][title='" + controlName + "']");
    var peoplePickerEditor = peoplePickerDiv.find("[title='" + controlName + "']");
    var spPeoplePicker = SPClientPeoplePicker.SPClientPeoplePickerDict[peoplePickerDiv[0].id];

I can get peoplePickerEditor and peoplePickerDiv[0].id without problem, but spPeoplePicker is undefined. What did I miss?

Resolved issue by adding timeout. Before that the function works in IE11, with timeout added also works in IE10.

 ExecuteOrDelayUntilScriptLoaded(function () {
        setTimeout(function () {
            setCPP(userAccountName, controlName);
        }, 2000);
    }, 'clientpeoplepicker.js');
