Using jQuery livequery to highlight a table row

I'm trying to highlight a row with jQuery and plugin livequery. I can do it fine if the table is loaded into the page initially, but if I try to dynamically load the table, the livequery is not working.

Is this possible? I've googled it but I don't see any examples doing what I need to do. Normally I would use the jQuery plugin flexigrid which handles it by binding the rows as they are appended but that is not what I want to do.

I want to be able to have a page loaded, click a link to display table data and onclick of the rows in that table, highlight the clicked row and remove the highlight from any previously clicked rows.

????
$('#tableid tbody tr ').livequery('click',function(e){
        
    ... take action here ...
        
});

Open in new window

I am not familiar with livequery but based on your goal I would just use the build in jquery live function. The live function was specifically created to handle objects created on a page after it has loaded.

Reference:
http://api.jquery.com/live/

Usage:
$('.clickme').live('click', function() {
  // Live handler called.
});

I've been using livequery for a long while now, maybe it was replaced by live. .live worked though.

Thanks for the info.
