brandonaaskov / jQuery Change Event: Proper Binding
Created January 11, 2012 21:34
jQuery's change() event doesn't work as expected with input text fields. This, however, does work.
View jQuery Change Event: Proper Binding
For some reason, the change() event only fires when the input field loses focus.
Binding to other options ('change keypress paste focus textInput input') will
fire the event several times, which is bad. The below code works even when
content is pasted into the text field, and only fires once as expected.
$('#search-form .term').bind('input', function(){
console.log('this actually works');
