Rebind events

Is is possible to rebind events?

For example if I assign on document load:-
$(".testButtons").click(function () { alert("hi"); });

Open in new window


And then I dynamically add a button with the class '.testButtons' then the event isnt attached, but I want it to.

For example jsFiddle

Any ideas how I can rebind?

Thank you
