Use the jQuery on() method

If you try to do something with the elements that are dynamically added to DOM using the jQuery click() method it will not work, because it bind the click event only to the elements that exist at the time of binding. To bind the click event to all existing and future elements, use the jQuery on() method. Let's take a look at an example to understand how it basically works:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
<meta charset="utf-8">
<title>jQuery Bind Click Event to Dynamically added Elements</title>
<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.12.4.min.js"></script>
<script>
    $(document).ready(function(){
        $("button").click(function(){
            $("ol").append("<li>list item <a href='javascript:void(0);' class='remove'>&times;</a></li>"); 
        });
        $(document).on("click", "a.remove" , function() {
            $(this).parent().remove();
        });
    });
</script>
</head>
<body>
    <button>Add new list item</button>
    <p>Click the above button to dynamically add new list items. You can remove it later.</p>
    <ol>
        <li>list item</li>
        <li>list item</li>
        <li>list item</li>
    </ol>
</body> 
</html>
