javascript, loaded via ajax not binding inside a parent element.

Reported by: frankysanders Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: 1.2.2
Component: ajax Version: 1.2.1
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:

Steps to reproduce.

1) load ajax via .ajax() method

2) put in dom via (id).html(ajax_result);

The following example works:

ajax_result =

<a href="#">hello</a>
    alert('I will execute');
         $("a").click(function() {alert('hi');});

Howerver, this example does not:

ajax_result =

<a href="#">hello</a>
    alert('I will execute');
         $("a").click(function() {alert('hi, but you won\\'t see me');});

Notice that the only difference is that one binding happens inside of a parent element.

I've tested this behavior in IE 7 and FF

I'm not sure if this behavior be expected to work as it's generally recommended to leave javascript out of the body of a document however sometimes it's necessary.

This appears to be fixed in SVN rev 4092 (it did fail in 1.2.1). There were several changes made to that section of the code but none were specficially made for this ticket so if something still doesn't work please reopen with additional information/test cases.
