Description (last modified by brandon)

This is how event triggering should be re-worked:


  • Should be cancellable.
  • Should only trigger bound event handlers.


  • Should trigger default browser action
  • Should not be cancellable
  • Should not allow clicking on links in IE
  • If no action exists, call trigger("event")


  • Should use triggerAction

So .click() will only use triggerAction and will not use trigger at all?

comment:3 Changed 15 years ago by john

Correct - but triggerAction will call trigger if no default action exists. (Since default actions end up triggering the event handlers anyway.)
