Bootstrap modal dialog button click event triggering on modal open

I am working on an application and need to open a

modal
, have the user fill in some details and save them once they click the modal button i have designated. I have used
jQuery
on
to bind a
click
event for the button. problem is the click event is triggered when the modal opens.

Relevant parts of modal:

<div class="modal-footer">
<a href="#" class="btn" data-dismiss="modal">Close</a>
<a href="#" class="btn btn-primary" id="save-event">Save Event</a>




Where i bind the event:

$('#save-event').on(
'click',
function(evt)
{
console.log('triggered');
}
);


The console shows 'triggered' when i open the dialog. I open the dialog through:

<a href="#add-event-modal" role="button" class="btn" data-toggle="modal">{% trans "Event also occurs on" %}</a>


Its a Django app so the curly braces. Any ideas what i could be doing wrong or is there another way to execute some logic once the user clicks the relevant button?

Answer

You might be having 2 elements with the same id in the html and you are getting the event triggered when you are clicking on the other element.
