    I have a simple iframe that displays a list of database records.

    <iframe id="podcast-list-frame" class="podcast-list" src="podcast-listing"></iframe>

    This shows up fine and all that. I then want to know if a table row was clicked inside the iframe so I use
    However, when I try to use that with the click() event, nothing ever gets triggered.

    I try to register a click event with the iframe itself and nothing gets triggered. When I change click() to mouseenter() it indeed works.

    Any ideas? It seems like a simple thing but I can’t figure out what I’m doing wrong :(


    Hi @fooman

    I have a feeling it may be to do with timing and when your actually attaching the click handlers

    If you attach the click handler before the iframe has actually loaded then it will never fire, you need to attach the handler after the iframe has loaded,

    check out for a demo
