jQuery unbind: Main Tips

  • The .unbind() jQuery method was used to remove event handlers added using the also deprecated .bind() method.
  • .unbind() was deprecated in jQuery 3.0 version.

Writing and Using .unbind()

The .unbind() jQuery method removed event handlers added using the .bind() method.

Example
$("button").click(() => {
   $("p").unbind();
});

The syntax for jQuery .unbind() was as follows:

$("selector").unbind(event, function, eventObject);

This method accepted three arguments:

  • event defined a standard JavaScript event type or a custom jQuery.event object.
  • function specified a handler function to remove (if skipped, all handlers for the particular event will be removed).
  • eventObject specified the event object to remove if one was specified when adding the event handler.

Note: the jQuery .unbind() method was deprecated since version 3.0. Use .off() instead.
