I think the issue was by ths following , It looks like the Changed event is being phased out in favor of ColorInfo.ColorChanged, ImageInfo.ImageChanged, etc. In fact, the Changed event is not fired anymore as of 2011 for color changes. Turns out that there were other things underlying that caused the event to fire. Anyways, to make a long story short, don't use the Changed event.
jqplot not triggering"jqplotDataClick" event within backbone.js view
I wish this help you Well I will answer my own question after hours of debugging. Which will hopefully help some poor fool who makes mistakes like I do. During my testing I had added in all of the jqplot pluggins and I finally found out the the mobile pluggin overrides some of the main jqplot event handlers like onClich which was causing the problems. I remove the mobile pluggin and everything worked like a charm.
How do I open a dialog from a jqplot pie chart using jqplotDataClick?
