Definition and Usage

The off() method is most often used to remove event handlers attached with the on() method.

As of jQuery version 1.7, the off() method is the new replacement for the unbind(), die() and undelegate() methods. This method brings a lot of consistency to the API, and we recommend that you use this method, as it simplifies the jQuery code base. 

Note: To remove specific event handlers, the selector string must match the one passed to the on() method, when the event handler was attached. 

Tip: To attach an event that only runs once and then removes itself, use the one() method.


Syntax

$(selector).off(event,selector,function(eventObj),map)

Parameter Description
event Required. Specifies one or more events or namespaces to remove from the selected element(s).

Multiple event values are separated by a space. Must be a valid event
selector Optional. A selector which should match the one originally passed to the on() method when attaching event handlers
function(eventObj) Optional. Specifies the function to run when the event occurs
map Specifies an event map ({event:function, event:function, ...}) containing one or more event to attach to the elements, and functions to run when the events occur
