Learn how to respond to the actions that a user performs on a page using jQuery events. Attach event handlers to DOM elements and respond to mouse events like click and hover, and keyboard events such as someone pressing or releasing a key. Finally learn about responding to special events that only occur on form elements. This chapter gives a description of each of the available jQuery events and how or when they are triggered. Check out for more information on compatibility for assigning keyboard events across multiple browsers.
