Live Event Binds Ignore Context

Reported by: chrismjohnson Owned by: brandon
Priority: minor Milestone: 1.4
Component: event Version: 1.3.2

Blocked by: Blocking:

Using the live event bind (.live) on a jQuery collection resulting from a .find, the event is bound to the selector of the .find with no regard for the parent collection of the .find.

The livequery plugin appears to respect the context properly.

Examples attached.

If you read the documentation it says ''Live events currently only work when used against a selector'' as in ''$('.dropdown li').live(...)'' and not ''$(elem).find("li").live(...)''.

To fix you will find that in your function outside of the each loop ''this'' refers to ''$('.dropdown')'' and not an element so you can call your ''this.find('li').live('click', ...)'' method there and it should work since it's equivalent to ''$(this.selector + ' li').live(...)''.

I'm surprised livequery works but if you try a more obvious example like:

''$($(".dropdown")[0]).find("body li").livequery("click", function() { alert(this); });''

Then it fails in livequery just like it does in jQuery in your example.
