Race condition in dialog keeps input elements disabled

Reported by: BrianHV Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: 1.8
Component: ui.dialog Version: 1.6rc6
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:

1. Load the HTML below into a browser

1. Click the "Click me" button, then hit escape within two seconds

1. Click the "The onclick fires" button.

Expected behavior: a form post occurs, resulting in two alerts, the second of which is "form submitted,"

Actual behavior: the onclick event occurs but not the submit event, resulting in only one alert.

I believe this occurs because the event bindings occur in a setTimeout. This leads to the escape being processed (and the events unbound) prior to the events being bound in the setTimeout callback. This in turn leads to the events never being unbound.

This seems to be a result of the fix to #2804.

Removing the setTimeout call (line 615 in ui.dialog.js in rc6) and placing the bind() call directly into the create function causes the second button to work as intended.
