#11761 confirmed Bug

Event system dies along with the last editor being destroyed

I stumbled upon this issue while developing sample for #11480.

This issue makes CKEditor events API quite useless without editor instance, especially if the editor is destroyed in the callback.

See jsFiddle.

How to reproduce?

  1. Create editor instance.
  2. Attach event listener on a DOM element outside of the editor. Not related to editable, etc.
  3. See that event works.
  4. Destroy the editor(s).


  1. Attached listener is not fired anymore.


  1. Attached listener is fired since the object in DOM is still there.

Quick research:

I find this very strange. I understand that it was done in order to free memory, but it's definitely a big negative surprise.

I was able to reproduce this issue from CKEditor 3.2.2 so perhaps there is something different that introduced this bug.
