recursion with resize events

Reported by: Owned by:

Component: event Version: 1.6.4

Blocked by: Blocking:

The code below produces a recursion, unless I change the namespace in function reposition() to a different than for the window-resize-event.

This behavior was not in jquery v1.5.1 f.e. (not tested others)

From my understanding this is a bug.

$(window).unbind("resize.divlayout").bind("resize.divlayout", function() {

console.log('window resize');



function reposition() {

$("#website_body").unbind('resize.divlayout').bind('resize.divlayout', function() {

console.log('website_body resize');

if( $("#website_page").css("position") != 'absolute' ) {

$("#website_page").css("padding-top", $("#website_body").height() / 2 - $("#website_page").height() /2 + "px");

}else {

$("#website_page").css("top", $("#website_body").height() / 2 - $("#website_page").height() /2 + "px");




<div id="website_body">

<div id="website_page"> </div>

Thanks for taking the time to contribute to the jQuery project! Please provide a complete reduced test case on jsFiddle to help us assess your ticket! Also indicate the browsers where the problem occurs.

Additionally, be sure to test against the jQuery Edge version to ensure the issue still exists. To get you started, use this boilerplate: Open the link and click to "Fork" (in the top menu) to get started.

An infinite loop was created...the crash is a good thing.
