Can anyone give example for both click and on click event in jquery? I tried this example for on click, but the same function is happening for a click event also,

 <!DOCTYPE html>
 <script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.5.1/jquery.min.js"> 
 $("#afazer").on("click", "li", function() {
 $("#afazer").append("<li>Afazer 5</li>");
<ul id="afazer">
    <li>Afazer 1</li>
    <li>Afazer 2</li>
    <li>Afazer 3</li>
    <li>Afazer 4</li>

  • I referred to this code to a site they told that, If the event was associated with .click, job 5 will not obey the click event, and thus will not be removed. If it was associated via .on, with the separate selector, it will obey. but for me these conditions do not get satisfied..Can you give a difference between click and on click event with example.

.click events only work when an element gets rendered and are only attached to elements loaded when the DOM is ready.

.on events are dynamically attached to DOM elements, which is helpful when you want to attach an event to DOM elements that are rendered on an ajax request or something else (after the DOM is ready).
