Live change event works improperly for file inputs in IE8/7

Reported by: em286 Owned by:
Priority: undecided Milestone: 1.4.3
Component: event Version: 1.4.2
Keywords: IE live change file Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:

Assume we have the following code:

<input type="file" id="works" />

<input type="file" id="dsntwork" />

<script type="text/javascript">



$('#dsntwork').live('change', function(){alert("works")});



When you pick a file for '#works' element you see the alerted text immediately. But when you pick the file for '#dsntwork' element you won't see any alerts untill you blur the element.

I'm having the same issue although with an input select, if i use .change it works if i use .live('change',... it doesn't. moving the cursor off the select does not cause it to fire. Issue occurs in IE 8.
