Incorrect documentation for event.currentTarget

Reported by: masklinn Owned by: ajpiano
Priority: low Milestone: 1.5
Component: support Version: 1.4.4
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:


The documentation for event.currentTarget states:

This property will always be equal to the this of the function.

but it is not the case if jQuery.proxy (or some other form of context-binding) was used. In this case, this will be the bound context while currentTarget will be the element the event was bound on (or for in the case of .live and .delegate).

http://api.jquery.com/event.currentTarget/ i added a note about this and revised the language. even though it's not a particularly high priority issue, as i think people who are using $.proxy aren't trying to use event.currentTarget as a "shortcut" to this because of this docs error. you never can be too careful though, i guess.
