Click event in a popup

Create a click event in a marker popup with Mapbox.js and jQuery.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<meta charset=utf-8 />
<title>Click event in a popup</title>
<meta name='viewport' content='initial-scale=1,maximum-scale=1,user-scalable=no' />
<script src=''></script>
<link href='' rel='stylesheet' />
  body { margin:0; padding:0; }
  #map { position:absolute; top:0; bottom:0; width:100%; }
<div id='map'></div>

<!-- jQuery is required for this example. -->
<script src=''></script>
L.mapbox.accessToken = '<your access token here>';
var map ='map')
    .setView([43.6475, -79.3838], 14)

var marker = L.marker([43.6475, -79.3838], {
      icon: L.mapbox.marker.icon({
        'marker-color': '#9c89cc'
    .bindPopup('<button class="trigger">Say hi</button>')

// The HTML we put in bindPopup doesn't exist yet, so we can't just say
// $('#mybutton'). Instead, we listen for click events on the map element which
// will bubble up from the tooltip, once it's created and someone clicks on it.
$('#map').on('click', '.trigger', function() {
    alert('Hello from Toronto!');
to create your own custom map and use it in this example.
Use this example by copying its source into your own HTML page and replacing the Map ID with one of your own from your projects. Having trouble with JavaScript? Try out Codecademy or contact our support team.
