Dynamic data not calling class after creation

I have a table row I append to a table. One of the items has a class attached, and the class is supposed to have an onclick event. When I click on the dynamic row it doesn't run the function. The part that isn't working is the remove link. It doesn't call the Remover function.

<a href="#" class="Remover" id="Remove' + msg[0].SenID + '">Remove</a>

Open in new window

$('#tblScenario').append('<tr><td class="divs">' + msg[0].Low + '</td><td class="divs">' + msg[0].Avg + '</td><td class="divs">' + msg[0].High + '</td><td class="divs">' + msg[0].Count + '</td><td><a href=\"FilterDetails.aspx?pid=' + msg[0].SenID + '\" target=\"_blank\">Details</a> </td><td><a href="#" class="Remover" id="Remove' + msg[0].SenID + '">Remove</a></td></tr>');

when you insert dynamically element in your page you need to use jQuery.on :
http://api.jquery.com/on/ but the main selector is acontainer of this element :

jQuery("#tblScenario").on("click", ".Remover", function(event) {
      // remove the line for example :
      // $(this).closest("tr").remove();

Open in new window

"#tblScenario" is the best container because it's the table
but you can choose a div around this table, or the document itself, in the background "jQuery" is just looking inside each time a click appear to know if the target is your class

your jQuery library is very old...
use delegate or live instead

jQuery(".Remover").live("click",function(event) {
      // remove the line for example :
      // $(this).closest("tr").remove();
