Event binding on dynamically created elements?

2 Answer(s)
// creating a dynamic element (container div)
var $div = $("<div>", {id: 'myid1', class: 'myclass'});

//creating a dynamic button
 var $btn = $("<button>", { type: 'button', text: 'Click me', class: 'btn' });

// binding the event
 $btn.click(function () { //for mouseover--> $btn.on('mouseover', function () {
    console.log('clicked');
 });

// append dynamic button to the dynamic container
$div.append($btn);

// add the dynamically created element(s) to a static element
$("#box").append($div);

var iterations = 4;
var button;
var body = document.querySelector("body");

for (var i = 0; i < iterations; i++) {
    button = document.createElement("button");
    button.classList.add("my-button");
    button.appendChild(document.createTextNode(i));
    button.addEventListener("click", myButtonWasClicked);
    body.appendChild(button);
}

function myButtonWasClicked(e) {
    console.log(e.target); //access to this specific button
}
