Working with Events
In this chapter, I describe the jQuery support for events. If you are unfamiliar with events, then I provided a brief overview of how they work and how they are propagated through the DOM (Domain Object Model) in Chapter 2. jQuery provides some useful event-related features, of which my favorite is the ability to automatically associate event handler functions with elements as they are added to the DOM. Table 9-1 provides the summary for this chapter.
