$.ajax error event fail

First, about your Bug Tracker:

OperationalError: (2006, 'MySQL server has gone away')

[ 03-07-2009 12:10 CET ]

My problem: When Ajax request is complete (but it's an error - in my case: wrong filename), the "success" function starts working, ignoring the error event.

  • Function:

var url = "somethingwrong.html";


beforeSend: function(){

alert('beforesend event');


error: function(){

alert('error event');


success: function(){

alert('success event');

Hello, I believe this bug may have been called by confusion between $.ajax() and $.ajaxSetup().

In the above example, you are making two requests. One with $.ajax() and another one with $.load().

The first request, calls the page you are on, which will return a 200. The second request, using $.load(), calls the 404, but no events have been attached.

Instead, if you use $.ajaxSetup() [see attached sample], it will always fire the error event.
