Javascript Question

Jquery onclick change dynamically

following is my JQuery onclick function. An event applied on image.

this code is changing onclick event depending on data values received.

I added a break point in code as shown below in code.
A strange thing that is happening is that on my first click interpreter pass through my code one time only which is normal.

but when i click 2nd time it pass 2 times

on third click it pass 4 times

5th click 8 and so on

i.e number of call backs invoke per click are increasing exponentially. Now my question is why this is happening.

NOTE: all variables are defined properly but for simplification i striped down rest of code.

updateUser = function (user, block) {
type: "POST",
url: "index.php?option=com_contentbuilder&controller=myActicateUser",
data: data,
dataType: "json",
success: function (data) {
if (data) {
var pinID = "#pin" + user;
user = data[0];
>>breakpoint if (data[1] === "0") {

jQuery(pinID).click(function () {
updateUser(user, "1")
jQuery(pinID).attr("src", tack);

} else if (data[1] === "1") {

jQuery(pinID).click(function () {
updateUser(user, "0")
jQuery(pinID).attr("src", tick);


what i have already tried is

Instead of Click,based on jquery plugin, You could use

jQuery(pinID).live("click",function(){updateUser(user, "1")})


jQuery(pinID).on("click",function(){updateUser(user, "1")})

May be This would help you out . Because these will dynamically bind and handle click event to your elements.
