Reported by: salomvary Owned by: dmethvin
Priority: undecided Milestone: 1.7
Component: event Version: 1.4.2
Keywords: submit delegate live ie Cc:
Blocking: Blocked by:


If 'click' was delegated to the same context element, delegated 'submit' event handler will never be called.

All IE versions (IE6, IE7, IE8) are affected.


var first = 'body'; var second = 'body'; jQuery(first).delegate('foobar','click', jQuery.noop); jQuery(second).delegate('form','submit', function(){

alert('submit'); return false;


'body'/'body': broken

'body'/'html': works

document/document: broken

document/'body': works

..and so on

For IE8, appears to have been broken in 1.4.2, fixed in 1.4.3 and broken again in 1.4.4.

I do not see a failure with 1.6.3 but will keep this open and retest with 1.7.

The test case in comment 1 continues to work for me, tested in IE7 and IE9. Please open a new ticket with a test case.
