jQuery1.7rc1 and jQueryMobile1.0rc2 - IE gets error in jqm triggerCustomEvent method

I'm using jqm 1.0rc2 and jquery1.7rc1

Switched from jQuery 1.6.1 to 1.7rc1, and IE started throwing "SCRIPT5007: Unable to get the value of the property 'call': object is null or undefined".

A small bit of debugging led me to jQueryMobile's "triggerCustomEvent" method:

function triggerCustomEvent( obj, eventType, event ) {
  var originalType = event.type;
  event.type = eventType;
  $ obj, event );
  event.type = originalType;

It looks like the problem is $.event doesn't have an object 'handle'.


jQueryMobile1.0rc2 & jQuery1.6.1

jQueryMobile1.0rc2 & jQuery1.7rc1

(I submitted the ticket here rather than in jqueryMobile because all I changed was jQuery, and the error showed up...)

It's possible that the jQuery Mobile team hasn't update to support jQuery 1.7rc1 (release _candidate_ 1). Can you confirm their release notes?

@rwaldron The jQM team are currently recommending the use of 1.0RC2 with 1.6.4 as opposed to 1.7RC1. I don't believe they've updated support to cover this release just yet.

Thanks Addy. I'll leave this open for now - it might become an real issue when they get to updated.

jQuery.event.handle isn't part of the documented interfaces, it's now jQuery.event.dispatch. I'll talk with the jQuery Mobile guys, it seems like this should be done with jQuery.fn.triggerHandler or perhaps jQuery.event.simulate which is new to 1.7. We'll work something out.

Fix #10576. Add alias for jQuery.event.handle so voyeur code still works.

Between new 1.7 special event hooks and jQuery.event.simulate() we have a much cleaner solution than the people calling jQuery.event.handle are doing, but we shouldn't break their use of this undocumented internal interface for now.
