Triggering "click" event on a checkbox toggles the "checked" property after the handler function has run

When a user click on a checkbox with a click listener, it first flips the "checked" state and then fires the event.

When a developer initiates a click on a checkbox with jQuery, it first fires the event and then flips the "checked" state.

A complete test case (for convenience, copy the code, type (without the quotes) within the location bar "

", paste the code and press Enter) -

  <script src=""></script>
   function run()
    $("#test-checkbox").click(function () { alert(this.checked); });
    $("#test-click").click(function () { $("#test-checkbox").click(); });
 <body onload="run()">
  <input type="checkbox" id="test-checkbox"/>
  <span id="test-click">Initiate a click event</span>

This has been like that since forever (I checked with jQuery 1.2.4, 1.3.2, 1.4, 1.7, 1.7.1rc1).

Thanks for taking the time to contribute to the jQuery project! Please provide a complete reduced test case on jsFiddle to help us assess your ticket.

Additionally, be sure to test against the jQuery Edge version to ensure the issue still exists. To get you started, use this boilerplate: Open the link and click to "Fork" (in the top menu) to get started.

I believe the order is dependent on the browser. Which browser are you using?
