controlling the value of this in a jquery event
controlling the value of this in a jquery event ¬†using -'jquery,scope,this'
I have created a 'control' using jQuery and used jQuery.extend to assist in making it as OO as possible.
During the initialisation of my control I wire up various click events like so
¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†this.controlDiv).bind('click', this, this.availableCategoryClick);
Notice that I am pasing 'this' as the data argument in the bind method. I do this so that I can get at data attached to the control instance rather from the element that fires the click event.
This works perfectly, however i suspect there is a better way
Having used Prototype in the past, I remember a bind syntax that allowed you to control what the value of 'this' was in the event.
What is the jQuery way?
