As noted in this post, Table 6.1 is missing the contextmenu event.
At page 177, the snippet in the middle have the following element:

<option value="equal">is exactly</option>


however it should be:

<option value="equals">is exactly</option>


So, the value of the value should be equals and not equal.
Hi.

Thank you for taking the time the comment. As you can imagine, this was a simple typo that has been fixed in the final version of the book.

Hi.

The "contextmenu" event has nothing special compared to other events like "blur" or "click". As you have noted, the event wasn't included in the table and it's just an oversight. Sorry about that.

Cheers
Hi.

You're right in saying that the code could have been written as you suggested, which is slightly shorter.

Thank you for taking the time to comment.
Hi.

Thank you for taking the time to report this error. This was fixed during one of the book reviews, so it isn't included in the final version of the book.

The link is the same but it's possible that the file hasn't been updated. Let me check, and I'll get back to you soon.
Hello mikegriffin.

Thank you for reading the book. The Appendix should be published in the next release, probably with chapter 14.

Have a nice weekend
Hello.

Thank you so much for notifying us about the typo. It's correct, it should be ".php" as in the source code.

Have a nice day
Hello.

Our team have checked the files and, unfortunately, they are not seeing any issue. Can you try a different reader program and see if it still show the issue?

Thanks
Hello Sosana.

I'm sorry to hear that you're having problems with the EPUB format. I'm going to report your feedback to the support team. We'll update you as soon as possible.
Hello proebuck.

Yes, it's still possible to create custom events in jQuery.
Hello Iain.

We're aware of this issue so we've added the following note in the book:

NOTE This Lab page loads the elements on which it acts upon inside an iframe. Due to a security restrictions of some browsers, you may fail in playing with it. To avoid this issue, you can either execute the page under a web server like Apache, Tomcat, or IIS, or search a specific solution for your browser. For example, in WebKit browsers, you can run them using the flag --disable-web-security.
Hi ddavie.

The exercises are not meant to be used with the Lab page. The key concept of that section is to see if you're able to remember and use the selectors learned to that point. Therefore, almost none of the solutions will have a match if used with the Lab page.
Hi ddavie.

The console provided by JSbin is for output results only. If you want to experiment with the code you have to use the JS tab instead. More on how to use JSbin here: http://jsbin.tumblr.com/.
Hi Misa.
Thank you so much for your feedback, it's much appreciate.

About the pagination of the example, keep in mind that what you're reading is not the final version of the chapter. Therefore this kind of issues aren't taken into account.

About this selector, [href^!='http://'], it's not valid, that's why it doesn't work. As suggested, a possible solution is a:not([href^='http://']).
With this thread I want to say welcome to everybody interested in the third edition of jQuery in Action. I hope you'll have a great time reading the book.
