#14983 closed bug (invalid)

trigger('click') on checkbox erases custom event properties

Reported by: kaeff Owned by: kaeff
Priority: low Milestone: None
Component: event Version: 1.11.0
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:


I want to simulate a shift-click on a check box using a keyboard binding using trigger and a custom event:

var triggerShiftClick = function() {

var e = jQuery.Event("click"); e.shiftKey = true; $("#checkbox").trigger(e);


However, the shiftKey property gets erased from the event the click handler receives.

Using this fiddle (http://jsfiddle.net/kPM7K/2/), I was able to reproduce it it 1.9.2, but not in 1.8.3.

I assume that it is related to jquery.event.special.click.trigger, which ignores the custom event object and forces a click().

Sorry, forgot to set the version property correctly and can't modify it anymore.

We don't support older versions anyway. Can you verify that this is the correct behavior you expected? http://jsfiddle.net/kPM7K/3/
