El and events

Silly thing tripped me up today so think its worth noting.. got the answer from here eventually¬†http://stackoverflow.com/questions/18661395/backbone-select-change-event-not-firing¬†Effectively what was happening is that I was injecting content into the el ¬†and then trying to fire and event on the same container. As the SO answer says “#panel_filters is actually the element that I injected my view into. Technically, it’s considered outside the view. And apparently, view events are scoped to the view itself.” – so I was trying to target outside the view. One to keep in mind.
