$(...).change() on radio not working when using keyboard to change selection in WebKit browsers

Reported by: [email protected] Owned by: [email protected]

In WebKit based browsers like Chrome and Safari, the change event isn't fired when using the keyboard to change the selection. Using the mouse works like expected.

Short sample code:

<input type="radio" name="tester" value="1" />
<input type="radio" name="tester" value="2" />
<script type="text/javascript">$('input').change(function() { console.log("fired"); });</script>

This works for me in both Chrome and Safari

Using Safari Version 5.0.5 (6533.21.1) on Mac OS X 10.6.7 Build 10J869.

This fiddle works for me when I hit space after selecting the first empty radio button. It doesn't work when hitting the right or left arrow keys.

What I did:

  • Open the link
  • Clicked on "Result" part on white background
  • Hit tab: first radio button becomes selected.
  • Hit space: "fired" gets printed in the console
  • Hit right arrow key: second radio button becomes selected, no "fired" in the console.

A workaround is mentioned here: http://evilstreak.co.uk/blog/fixing-change-events-on-radios

Has this been reported as a bug to the Safari/Chrome teams? Seems like they should be able to fix it.

We might be able to do it via a special event handler but then we'd also need to figure out a feature detect to determine whether/when it is needed and based on your description I am not sure that is possible.

Don't no, I havn't reported it because I didn't know which product is affected.
