...... Expose jQuery Mobile events through dynamic actions769EA1The jQuery Mobile framework exposes a number of events that provide useful hooks for developers of mobile applications. This feature extends the events exposed in the dynamic action framework, to incorporate these jQuery Mobile events.
...... Provide 'Custom' event in dynamic actions, to allow definition of any custom event767EA1Provide a 'Custom' or 'Other' option when specifying a dynamic action's event. This would allow greater flexibility for advanced developers to attach dynamic actions based on events that we do not provide as out of the box events. For example to respond to events from other JS frameworks, or to respond to custom events triggered by the developer on the page.

This would be an additional option in the When > Event saying 'Custom' or 'Other', then an additional field displays allowing freetext specification of any event.

...... Switch to new jQuery 'on' event registration (will be used by existing events and new mobile events)836EA1jQuery 1.7 introduces a new and improved event registration model, via the 'on' method. This combines the previous 'bind', 'live' and 'delegate' methods to register event handlers into 1 easy method. See here for details:
