I don't know why but the event corresponding to onreset is not implemented in jquery.

Seems to work for me in FF, IE, Chrome, and Safari.

the bind function in jquery 1.3.2 works if you bind a 'reset' event, but there is no function reset() but there is a submit() function.

the line 3093 in jquery dev version should also list 'reset' as a possible function. Also, the documentation event documentation ( should be updated to list the new reset function.

Also, it seems that jquery doesn't care if you try to bind a 'submit' even on an element other than a 'form'. Is that normal ? I would have taught that jquery would warn the user that it's incorrect.

Please attach a test case that demonstrates the problem.

There is nothing wrong with attaching a "submit" event to any element, because code can always

on an element whether the DOM does or not.

jQuery does not have shortcuts for all event types, just the most popular. There is not a corresponding .reset() short-cut. You must use .bind() or create a .reset() plugin.

$.fn.reset = function( fn ) {
    return fn ? this.bind( "reset", fn ) : this.trigger("reset");
