jQuery .click() behaves different that browser .click() and human click

Hi again guys.

I found .click() is behaving in a strange way so I'll post it here, before all sorry if it's not a bug and it's documented anywhere.

When I assign a "click" handler to a input type=checkbox, normally when the event fires the checkbox is already checked or unchecked, so I can use $(this).is(":checked") to know about the new state.

When I say normally, I refer to human click, clicking on a <label for="id"> which points to the checkbox, or document.getElementById("id").click().

But if I do $("#id").click(), the event fires before the checkbox gets checked/unchecked, so I can´t handle the event consistently.

You can see it there:

Tested on IE7, 8, FF13 & Chrome 19, wrong behavior everywhere.

I'm thinking about merging it with, which also behaves different with browser click and jQuery click;

Best regards.

Sorry guys, changes on, finally both tickets are not related.

I'm happy to see that ticket has been tagged as "1.9-discuss". Congratulations in always keep efforting to make the best decissions about the issues - I understand the arguments to set that problem as wontfix aswell as the imporance of making jquery behavior consistent in all the situations.

Best regards.
