Pass parameters to resize event function

I need to attach a function to the resize event, but it doesn't work if the function has parameters, it works if I execute the function inside an anonymous function, but then I'm not able to remove the listener as theirs no reference to it.

Here is my code:

addEvent(window, 'resize', ); // Doesn't work

addEvent(window, 'resize', function() { // Does work but can't remove the listener;

'addEvent' is just a simple cross-browser event listener function. I don't get any errors, the event just doesn't fire.

No jQuery answers please.


addEvent Function:

function addEvent(elem, event, fn) {
    if(elem.addEventListener) {
        elem.addEventListener(event, fn);
    } else {
        elem.attachEvent('on' + event, fn);
