change() event delegation failing in IE 6

Reported by: dom Owned by: brandon
Priority: major Milestone: 1.3.2
Component: event Version: 1.3.1
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:



It seems like the change() event triggered by a select element is not properly bubbled up to its parents in IE 6 (and I suspect, but haven't been able to check, IE 7 as well).

The attached code works as expected in FF and Opera (triggers an alert on changing the values of one of the select), but not in IE.

The change event does not bubble in IE, even though the W3C says it should. The problem is more noticeable now that the .live() function might encourage you to rely on bubbling.

There are items on the roadmap to expand .live() support. For now it's working as documented so I'll close this ticket since it's not a bug.
