IE 7 bind listening bug with "change" event

Reported by: benford Owned by: brandon
Priority: major Milestone: 1.4.2
Component: event Version: 1.4.1
Keywords: event, change, bind Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:

When bind-ing to a radio button with the "change" event listener, IE 7 behaves as normal, except that the event trigger does not occur until focus leaves the radio button.

On Firefox (3.x), Safari (3.x) and Opera (96) the event will trigger as soon as the radio button is selected, not waiting until focus leaves the selected radio button.

Changing the event to another type, such as "click" restores expected behavior.

This bug might be present in other versions of IE, but have only tested this on IE 7 so far.

This was fixed in jQuery 1.4-1.4.2.

Select elements with the "multiple" attribute seem to still be having some issues in IE (versions 6 and 7, at least, haven't tried 8) -- the "change" event only fires half the time. Not sure if it would help, but my workaround for all these issues is here:
