jquery ajax and html

Does anybody know how to execute javascript functions in an html that is loaded via ajax? I mean the html contains both plain text and javascript. In my case it seems that only the in-line javascript (eg. onclick="dosomething();return false") gets executed. The pre-defined functions which are wrapped by < script language = "javascript >are unfortunately ignored..

i have search couple articles through the site but the results are either use getScript to load a pure js or use eval. please help me out of this! Thank you very much!

Look up jquery event delegation, and the .live() method.


Event delegation is especially useful and efficient if you're working with a large piece of html that you've added dynamically.

I don't know if this fixes your problem... but if your loaded html also includes a link to jquery's code base, it can cause issues with the child-code not correctly linking with the handle to the jquery object ($).

If I understand you correctly, you receive from your AJAX call plain HTML mixed with javascript code, e.g. with tags. I'm didn't checked it, but you can try to do the following:

$.get( ajaxURL, function( data)
   $( "head").append( $( data).find( "script"));
   yourFunctionCall( );
