How to trigger a click on a link using jQuery

0 votes

I have a link:

<ul id="titleee" class="gallery">
  <li>
    <a href="#inline" rel="prettyPhoto">Talent</a>
  </li>
</ul>

and I am trying to trigger it by using:

$(document).ready(function() {
  $('#titleee').find('a').trigger('click');
});

But it doesn't work.

I've also tried: $('#titleee a').trigger('click');

Edit:

I actually need to trigger whatever get's called here <a href="#inline" rel="prettyPhoto">

$( "#foo" ). trigger( "click" ); As of jQuery 1.3, . trigger() ed events bubble up the DOM tree; an event handler can stop the bubbling by returning false from the handler or calling 

To trigger handlers bound via jQuery without also triggering the native event, use .triggerHandler() instead.

When we define a custom event type using the .on() method, the second argument to .trigger() can become useful. For example, suppose we have bound a handler for the custom event to our element instead of the built-in click event as we did above:

1

2

3

4
$( "#foo" ).on( "custom", function( event, param1, param2 ) {

alert( param1 + "\n" + param2 );

});

$( "#foo").trigger( "custom", [ "Custom", "Event" ] );
