    how to bind focus and blur on new elements

    Hi, I am having trouble binding focus and blur to new elements.

    I have the following HTML code:

    <div class="ticket">
    <input class="firstname" name="firstname[]" title="First Name(s)" value="" />
    <input class="lastname" name="lastname[]" title="Last Name" value="" />
    <a href="#"><img src="/images/admin/DeleteRed.png" /></a> OR
    <a href="#" class="add">Add more</a>
    </div>

    I then have the following jquery code attached to 'Add more' hyperlink:

    $("body").on("click", "a.add", function() {
    var content = $(this).parent('.ticket').html();
    var newdiv = $("<div class='ticket'>");
    newdiv.html(content);
    $(this).parent('.ticket').after(newdiv);
    return false;
    });

    As you can see, all it does is copy the current div and add it straight after.

    The input fields within the div tag have the following jquery bound to it:

    $('input:text').on({
    focus: function () {
    var self = $(this);

    if (self.val() == self.attr('title')) {
    self.val('');
    };
    },
    blur: function () {
    var self = $(this),
    val = jQuery.trim(self.val());

    if (val == "" || val == self.attr('title')) {
    self.val(self.attr('title'));
    };
    }
    }).trigger('blur');

    It does seem to copy the div tag and place it right after the current one, however, it does not bind focus or blur to the newly added elements.

    What am I doing wrong?

    thanks

    You use 'on' as $(document) instead of $('input:text') and then you use 'input:text' as the second argument to on() when you use the object syntax like that. It's cool, actually. Nice job jQuery:
    http://jsfiddle.net/DBGWs/
    http://api.jquery.com/on/
    You don't -have- to bind to document, you can also do any element which contains the new elements. In this fiddle I didn't have any, so I used document instead.
