jQuery Live binding to form submit in IE

Reported by: ahsteele Owned by:

In Internet Explorer 8 (IE8) binding to the submit event with live does not work but does work in Firefox, Chrome, and Safari.

$('form').live('submit', function (event) {......});

See http://forum.jquery.com/topic/ie-specific-issues-with-live-submit for discussion.

i have the same problem. I do this instead, but it won't work if I dynamically add a form element... $(function () { $('form').bind('submit', handle_submit); });

I would much rather write $('form').live('submit', handle_submit);

From what I can see with my testing this was solved in 1.4.3

I think the problem can still be seen here http://jsfiddle.net/ytxXG/9/

Works fine in all browsers except IE8 and below.

Just tried it in jQuery up to 1.5
