I am trying to trigger a post request when a user clicks the submit button for a comment. Right now clicking the submit button triggers nothing, I even tried to console.log($(this)) I got no output. The first code below is the jQuery event code and ajax code. The block of code below that is the html button. thanks for the help.

 $('#submitComment').on('click', '#content', function() {

        $.ajax({

            url: 'http://localhost:3000/comments',

            type: 'POST',

            data: data = { comment: {

                body: $(this).find('input[name="createComment"]').val(),

                user_id: 1,

                image_set_id: 2}

            }

        }).done(function(response) {

            console.log(response);

        });

    });

the button I am trying to target with jQuery event

<div class="container">

    <div id="content">

      //the code between comments is in a Handelbar template

        <input name="createComment">

        <button type="submit" id="submitComment">Create Comment</button>

       //end of handelbar template

    </div>

</div>

    Re: problem in jQuery event not triggering


    You need to bind the delegated handler to an ancestor(#content) of the target element(submitComment)

    $('#content').on('click', '#submitComment', function () {

        $.ajax({

            url: 'http://localhost:3000/comments',

            type: 'POST',

            data: data = {

                comment: {

                    body: $(this).find('input[name="createComment"]').val(),

                    user_id: 1,

                    image_set_id: 2

                }

            }

        }).done(function (response) {

            console.log(response);

        });

    });
