Javascript Question

jquery .on container element attached to multiple selectors

I am using

.on()
to attach click events to multiple elements that appear on the page dynamically. The problem I have is that when I add
.on
to a container on the page and want to attach click events to multiple elements in the container, the latter overwrites the previous.

<div id="container">
<!-- elements here appear dynamically -->
<div id="id1"></div>
<div id="id1"></div>
</div>

<script>
$('#container').on("click", "#id1", function(){});
$('#container').on("click", "#id2", function(){});
</script>


In the above example only the click event for id2 works.

Is there a way around this?

Thank you,
Ev.

Yes your id is wrong. :)

YOu are using same id i.e. id1 for both elements.

Hope this helps,

code

bit improved code

$('#container').on("click", "#id1, #id2", function() {
    alert($(this).prop('id')) // you can use --> attr('id')
});​

or

 $('#container').on("click", "#id1, #id2", function() {
        alert($(this).attr('id')) 
    });​

or

 $('#container').on("click", "#id1", function(){alert('d1')});
   $('#container').on("click", "#id2", function(){alert('d2')});​
