#4939 closed bug (worksforme)

Using the not() filter negates the live() method

Description

$('#list .entry').not('.doc_entry').live('click', function(e) { ... }

This should apply the live click event handler to all elements with class="entry" inside id="list" that are not also class="doc_entry" however, the not() filter makes the live event binding fail.

Maybe I'm just writing the not() filter wrong, but removing it allowed the live event binding to work.

I think it's working according to the limits in the docs:

http://docs.jquery.com/Events/live#typefn

Live events currently only work when used against a selector. For example, this would work: $("li a").live(...) but this would not: $("a", someElement).live(...) and neither would this: $("a").parent().live(...).
