#10717 closed bug (fixed)

A triggered load bubbles up to window

Reported by: Boldewyn Owned by: dmethvin
Priority: low Milestone: 1.7.1
Component: event Version: 1.7

Consider this JSFiddle:


A function is bound via $(window).load(). Then the load event is triggered on an external resource element (in this case an image):


  • Actual output:

The load event bubbles up from the image to the window object.

  • Expected output:

The event should not bubble. Native load events on images, iframes, ... don't bubble to the parent window, too.

This was introduced in 1.5 as a consequence of events now bubbling to window (as the W3C Events Level 3 spec says they should). However, you're right that the load event isn't supposed to bubble *at all*; a browser event doesn't but our triggered event does. That's easily fixable in 1.7.1 with the new special events hooks.

Fix #10717, .trigger("load") on images can't bubble to window.

This means no manually triggered event named "load" can bubble, so avoid that name for delegated custom events.
