Abstract event binding

Reported by: jzaefferer Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: 1.9.0
Component: ui.widget Version: 1.8rc2
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:

Something like this should be added in 1.9:

$.widget.prototype._bind = function(elements, handlers) {
    if (!handlers) {
        handlers = elements;
        elements = this.element;
    var self = this,
    $.each(handlers), function(event, handler) {
        elements.bind(event, function() {
          if (!self.options.disabled) { return fn.apply(self, arguments); }

In addition, track all events bound (at least those bind to something else then element) and unbind them in destroy.

Branch for this ticket:

We shouldn't have merged 1.8.1 into that branch. Can't find the one commit to the branch...

See #7795, where _bind() was renamed to _on().
