    Anything that could be incorrect or a pitfall with doing that (see title)? I can’t find anything on it on the web but it seems to work and could optimise the code nicely when there’s a lot of events being handled.

    For example :

    var press = 'mousedown touchstart',
    release = 'mouseup touchend';
    $('#someDiv').on(press, function() {
        // do stuff
        $(this).off(release).on(release, function() {
        // other stuff

    A penny for your thoughts…


    Okay, thanks. That’s pretty neat – I’ll be using it then whenever it might be useful (why didn’t I think of it before).
