#9951 closed bug (fixed)

Wrong order in .trigger() when DOM is modified in a handler

Reported by: dmethvin Owned by: dmethvin
Priority: low Milestone: 1.7
Component: event Version: 1.6.2
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:


The W3C DOM Event Model spec (http://www.w3.org/TR/DOM-Level-3-Events/#event-flow) says browsers are supposed to calculate the event propagation path in advance, so that modifications to the DOM in a handler does not affect the path. Although the liveHandler method attempts this for delegated events, .trigger() does not.


There are still some situations where delegated events may yield a different path than directly attached ones; need to document that.

Fix #9951. Precompute path for .trigger() to match up with W3C spec.
