JQuery/MVC simple question creating button click through JQuery

Hello all,

I have a function that inserts a button after another button.  I need the class to call a click event of the button I am creating.  The class is using a button style.  This works on another area outside of the JQuery.  So here is what I have below.  The delete-button click event function is not getting into it the way I have this.   The onEdit function actually uses a Kendo editor template that places the delete button on the editor popup.  I think it may be based on the href not being correct.   Thanks all

  function onEditCollateral(e) {
        if (e.model.isNew()) {
            updateBtnText = $(".k-grid-update").html().replace("Update", "Create");
            $(".k-grid-update").html(updateBtnText);
            return;
        }
        
        $('<a class="delete-button k-button" href="\\\#"><span class="k-icon k-delete"></span>Delete</a>').insertAfter(".k-grid-update");
    }


    $(".delete-button").click(function(e) {
        e.preventDefault();
        alert('got this');
        var kendoWindow = $("<div />").kendoWindow({
            title: "Confirm",
            resizable: false,
            modal: true
        });

        kendoWindow.data("kendoWindow")
            .content($("#delete-confirmation").html())
            .center().open();

        kendoWindow
            .find(".delete-confirm,.delete-cancel")
            .click(function() {
                if ($(this).hasClass("delete-confirm")) {
                    $('<input />').attr('type', 'hidden')
                        .attr('name', 'cmdName')
                        .attr('value', 'Delete')
                        .appendTo('#LoanForm');

                    $("#LoanForm").submit();
                }

                kendoWindow.data("kendoWindow").close();
            })
            .end();
    });

When you bind an event using click() it will only bind the event to elements that exist when that function is called. If you then add another element dynamically, it won't have the same event binding. For this you need to use on() instead of click():

$(document).on("click", ".delete-button", function(e){
     ...
});

this is perfect thank you.   Do you know how I can call an action method in a controller passing a parameter I have in my model.  The param is model.loanid
