Ticket #11765 (closed enhancement: duplicate)
Allow delegated non-native events on disabled elements
|Reported by:||jmarston||Owned by:|
Currently jQuery does not call delegated event handlers for disable elements. This is to keep consistency between browsers because IE is the only browser that raises events on disabled elements (see #6911 and #8165).
It would be useful, however, if we could raise non-native events with trigger() on disabled elements and still have delegated handlers be run. Since jQuery would be handling the triggering, bubbling, and dispatching there wouldn't be any browser inconsistencies.
