Register an Ajax Event handler to be called when an Ajax request starts and no other requests are in progress.

In the example below when we press the button the first time, we use the .ajaxStart() method to set up a global event handler to be run for each Ajax request. The handler is fired every time an Ajax request is about to be sent (when you click in 'div4' after pressing '#btn4'). In this case the handler outputs a message giving some information about the request to be sent.


$(function(){
  $('#btn4').one('click', function(){
    $(document).ajaxStart(function(event, jqXHR, ajaxSettings) {
       $('#div4').append('Triggered the ajaxStart() global event handler for get7.js<br />');
    });
  });
  $('#div4').on('click', function(){
    $.get( "../../../js/get7.js" );
  });
});

div4. Some initial text.
