Accessing the 'caller' property of a function or arguments object is not allowed in strict mode

On the click of the same button action, I am starting some workflows and at the end, I am trying to submit the form by triggering the OnKeyPress event. This error surfaces only in IE11 and edge. It works just fine in Chrome.


<input type="button" value="Resubmit" name="SubmitBack" Class="btn btn-primary" id="resubmit" style="display:none" onkeypress="javascript:{ddwrt:GenFireServerEvent('__commit;__redirect={*redirectionurl*}')}"  ></input>

Script for OnClick function from which I am triggering OnKeyPress:

setTimeout(function() {
            subId = '8551c477-e9ac-4aab-a012-5e92f7c44ca2';          

            startWorkflow(itemId, subId).then(function() {

                setTimeout(function() {
                }, 7000);
                return true;

            }, function() {
        }, 2000);

Try to add line of code below before OnKeyPress event.

'use strict';

If you want to start a workflow before submit the form, I suggest you use REST API + jQuery Ajax to achieve it. To make the request synchronization, we can set async:false in the Ajax call. Then execute the OnkeyPress event or submit the form using REST API.
