Ticket #7090 (closed bug: worksforme)
Select() causes change() to break on text input fields for MSIE 6 and 7
|Reported by:||rabid_fish||Owned by:|
To recreate, follow these steps: 1) bind a change event to a text input 2) call select() to select all the text in the input 3) have the user edit change the field value in some way and leave the field via tab key or some such 4) notice how the change event did not fire
This is not a problem in Firefox, and I can confirm it was not a problem in jquery 1.3.2. Furthermore, it's only the first change event that is affected - if you tab back into the field, make a change, and leave the field, the change event fires succesfully.
