How to read bound hover callback functions in jQuery

Question :

How to read bound hover callback functions in jQuery,

Answer :

I used jQuery to set hover callbacks for elements on my page. I’m now writing a module which needs to temporarily set new hover behaviour for some elements. The new module has no access to the original code for the hover functions.

I want to store the old hover functions before I set new ones so I can restore them when finished with the temporary hover behaviour.

I think these can be stored using the function:

//save old hover behavior (somehow)    $('#foo').data('oldhoverin',???)    $('#foo').data('oldhoverout',???);    //set new hover behavior    $('#foo').hover(newhoverin,newhoverout);  

Do stuff with new hover behaviour…

//restore old hover behaviour  $('#foo').hover($('#foo').data('oldhoverin'),$('#foo').data('oldhoverout'));  

But how do I get the currently registered hover functions from jQuery?

Shadow2531, I am trying to do this without modifying the code which originally registered the callbacks. Your suggestion would work fine otherwise. Thanks for the suggestion, and for helping clarify what I’m searching for. Maybe I have to go into the source of jquery and figure out how these callbacks are stored internally. Maybe I should change the question to “Is it possible to do this without modifying jquery?”


Calling an event bind method (such as hover) does not delete old event handlers, only adds your new events, so your idea of ‘restoring’ the old event functions wouldn’t work, as it wouldn’t delete your events.
