MDN suggests that there's a much cleaner way of doing this in modern browsers:
// Assuming we're listening for e.g. a 'change' event on `element` // Create a new 'change' event var event = new Event('change'); // Dispatch it. element.dispatchEvent(event);
This question already has an answer here:
I'm setting a date-time textfield value via a calendar widget. Obviously, the calendar widget does something like this :
document.getElementById('datetimetext').value = date_value;
What I want is :
On changing value in the date-time textfield I need to reset some other fields in the page. I've added a onchange event listener to the datetimetext field which is not getting triggered, because I guess
onchange gets triggered only when the element gets focus & its value is changed on losing focus.
Hence I'm looking for a way to manually trigger this
onchange event (which I guess should take care of checking the value difference in the text field).
Any ideas ?
