$().load() & $.ajaxSetup bug

Reported by: mk Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: 1.3.2
Component: ajax Version: 1.3.1
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:

In my main .js file i have this line (I use it to show loading image at beginning of ajax request and hide it when it finishes).

$.ajaxSetup({dataType:'json', beforeSend:function() {; }, complete:function() { loading.hide(); }})

It works fine with $.post(), $.get()... but when using $().load() it will only show loading, it won't hide it. I tried to put alert() instead of loading functions, only one alert is shown.

method calls
with its own complete handler, which overrides the one that would have come in through
. However, if you were to have used the success handler then
would work and the others would fail.

Instead of using

to set handlers, you should be using the ajax global events such as ajaxComplete. I've edited the docs to make this a bit clearer.
