Copied from stackoverflow:

Here is sample:

<input id="testing" />

$('#testing').bind('change keydown',function(e){

$('body').append('<br />'+e.type);


Triggers two change events instead of one in IE only when ENTER button is pressed and does not triggers keydown.

If i change the order of bindings like that:

$('#testing').bind('keydown change',function(e){

$('body').append('<br />'+e.type);


Everything seems to be ok.

Could be a bug. I tested this in Firefox, Chrome, IE9, IE8, and IE7 and here are the results I got:

  • Firefox Fired: keydown, then a change.
  • Chrome Fired: keydown, then a change.
  • IE9 Fired: one Keydown Only
  • IE7/8 Fired: two changes

Gotta love browser inconsistencies! I try not to rely on things like this being in the same order. Another option is to wrap it, or fix it, to eat the unneeded event, if it's important.

There is no guarantee of order of events outside of key[down,up,press] and mouse[down,up,click]
