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

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;



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

Using this fiddle (, I was able to reproduce it it 1.9.2, but not in 1.8.3.

I assume that it is related to, 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?
