jQuery Bind Event

The jQuery event bind() method attaches one or more event handlers for selected elements, and specifies a function to run when the events occur. As of jQuery 1.7, the .on() method is the preferred method for attaching event handlers to a document. For earlier versions, the .bind() method is used for attaching an event handler directly to elements.

Syntax

$(selector).bind(event(s),data,function)
ParameterDescription
eventOne or more events to attach. Multiple values are separated by space.
dataOptional data to pass along to the function
functionFunction to run when the event(s) occur

Example

$("#close").bind("click",function () {
    $("#div1").slideUp(500);
});

In the jQuery code listed above, the bind() method attaches the click event and specifies the slideUp method to run on the element with an id of #div1.
