jquery click() on a link


I'm trying to trigger a click on a link when a page loads via ajax call, I tried all methods I found, but I can't manage to do that.

Considering that the link on which I want to trigger the click is given by this code

<a href="download.php?file=cloud/index.html" target="_blank" id="cliccami">Click here</a>

Here are the codes that I tried

<script> $("#cliccami").trigger("click"); </script> <script> $("#cliccami")[0].click(); </script> <script> window.open($("#cliccami").attr("href"), "_blank"); </script>

Both script and element are in the page loaded via ajax call. Could anyone help me to find out what's the matter?


EDIT, I think this is what you're looking for:


<a href="http://www.google.com" target="_blank" id="cliccami">Click here</a>


$(document).ready(function() { $('#cliccami').click(function(e) { window.open($(this).attr('href')); e.preventDefault(); }); $('#cliccami').click(); });

In my example (JSFiddle: <a href="http://jsfiddle.net/qw9BW/" rel="nofollow">http://jsfiddle.net/qw9BW/</a>) #cliccami's click event is captured, alerted, then stopped. then a $.click() is ran on page load to force the click event to happen.


Have you tried using a <em>ready</em> function?

$(document).ready(function() { $("#cliccami").trigger("click"); });
