#5970 closed bug (fixed)

Change event isn't fired in IE on a text box when starting from a empty field.

Reported by: tinyfly Owned by: brandon
Priority: major Milestone: 1.4.2
Component: event Version: 1.4.1
Keywords: change ie Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:


If you have an text input field with the .change() method attached. That change event isn't fired in IE if it was previously an empty text field. Once it has a value and then you change that value then it fires.

This appeared in the 1.4.1 version; 1.4.0 worked as expected.

Steps to recreate (with attached test case):

  1. Load page and make sure input field is empty
  2. Enter text in input
  3. Blur off input (notice nothing happens)
  4. Change text entered in step 1
  5. Blur off input (notice how event fires)

Seems like John has fixed this in 1.4.2:


Give it a try when it comes out and reopen the ticket if not.

@tinyfly: I copied your exact test page and I can verify that it's working in the latest trunk.

I see why I thought it wasn't fixed. If you first focus the field using .focus() when the page loads then perform the steps it still exhibits the same buggy behavior. See new attachment.
