The change event does not fire in Internet Explorer (IE)

Logging this in case it is not already logged.

It might be a choice that the JQuery library doesn't deal with this as it seems to be an IE bug. The problem is that when you click on a input of type radio or checkbox (perhaps more types), and you have attached a change function to these via JQuery, they do not fire as expected in IE, Internet Explorer.

I have implemented a fix for IE which uses blur and focus on click event of radio or checkbox, but I am not entirely satisfied that this is a good solution.

Speak great JQuery developers, what do you think? Will this fix come as part of the code in the future or do you just not support workaround for bugs in browsers (which I understand and respect). Any better solution you can think of?

Thanks and keep rockin'!

This is the code I used for the fix:

if ($.browser.msie) {

/*IE fix for on change handling (*/

$("input:radio, input:checkbox").click(function () {

That fires change, but it also fires a focus and blur which would cause issues. Your best bet for cross-browser operation if you need immediate notification is to use click.
