jQuery Event Target for caller s reference

0 votes

I don't know if I have forgotten how to do so or if it's a bug, but I just can't find the caller's reference in the "click" event using jQuery.

I'm doing the following:

$(document).ready(function() {
    $('#parent a.item').click(doSomething);
});

function doSomething(e) {
    // Alerts for demostrational purposes only
    alert(e.target);
    alert(e.currentTarget);
    alert(this);
    alert($(this)[0]);
}

All the alerts show the hyperlink´s href attribute(page URL + '#').
Am I doing something wrong?

Notes: Using jQuery 1.4.2.
