IE8 only: "this" binding being associated to the wrong element when the event callback is executed

Reported by: leolimasa Owned by: leolimasa
Priority: undecided Milestone: None
Component: event Version: 1.11.1
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:


The “this” reference is not being set correctly to the element that has fired the event, when using any of the jQuery event attaching functions and the html was manipulated without jquery before.

The following HTML code will reproduce the issue when executed in IE8 or in IE8 mode: <html>


<script src="mpage-jquery/src/main/resources/util/js/jquery/jquery-1.11.1.js"></script>

<div id="outsider">click me</div>

<div id="contents"> <div id="mydiv1">div1</div>


<script language="javascript">

Generates ids $("#mydiv1").click(function() { alert("I am: " + this.id); });

perform click to force the div into the cache $("#mydiv1").click();

"reload" the contents and reatach events var html = document.getElementById("contents").innerHTML; $("#contents").html(html); $("#mydiv1").click(function() { alert("I am: " + this.id); });

$("#outsider").click(function() { alert("Outsider ID: " + this.id); });

this will fire the outsider function with the context of mydiv1, due to cache issues on ie8 $("#outsider").click();


</body> </html>

Could not use jsFiddle since it does not support IE8
