jQuery events aren't asynchronous

I always thought events should be asynchronous. Turns out jQuery custom events aren't.



<script src="jquery.js" type="text/javascript"> </script> <script type="text/javascript">

function foo() {


init: function() {

$(document).trigger("process"); document.getElementById("somediv").innerHTML += "hello";


process: function() {

for (var i=0; i<10000; ++i) {

document.getElementById("somediv").innerHTML += i.toString();



} );

} function bar() {




</head> <body>

<div id="somediv" style="position: absolute; left: 100px; top:100px; width: 100px; height: 100px;"> </div> <input type="button" onclick="foo();" value="Bind"> <input type="button" onclick="bar();" value="Trigger">

</body> </html>

Click on bind and then click on trigger. In ideal asynchronous events hello should be printed before the numbers. But output is reverse here.

This isn't something that we're going to change - it's up to you to handle any asynchronous behavior or triggering (such as putting the executed code inside a timeout).
