val('') doesn't fire 'input' event

Changing a text input's value with jQuery.val() doesn't fire the DOM input event, breaking everything that normally relies on this specific event for an on-change handler.


Use case: being able to type into a text input or use a jQuery plugin to choose field input, and then using the input event to trigger an auto-completing feature. When the jQuery plugin is used to set the text input value via .val(), the auto-compete will not be triggered and the .trigger('input') must be manually used.

Why would this not be intended functionality?

Please provide a test case. If you're also saying jQuery maliciously tries to hide this event, please provide a test case that shows how it works with plain DOM and is hidden when you use jQuery.
