Slider.js : optionnal onChange gets fired when the set method is called, even when the value has not changed

In Slider.js, the onChange event is fired after calling the set() method (via checkStep()).

I needed to fire the event even if the step value remains the same, but I can't do it from the outside without the risk of calling twice the onChange event.

So I patched Slider.js this way :

set: function(step,forceChange){
	if (!((this.range > 0) ^ (step  0) ^ (step > this.max))) step = this.max;
	this.step = Math.round(step);
	this.checkStep($chk(forceChange) && forceChange);
	this.fireEvent('onTick', this.toPosition(this.step));
	return this;

checkStep: function(forceChange){
	if (this.previousChange != this.step || forceChange){
		this.previousChange = this.step;
		this.fireEvent('onChange', this.step);

I guess it might be useful for other people.

    • Tag set to enhancement, minor, plugins, slider

    I'm not sure if I'm understanding this one correctly. The title and the description seem to disagree on the problem. The title says the onChange event was firing when the value didn't change but the description seems to say they needed to fire the event even if the value remains the same.

    Presumably the error is that it was firing even when it hadn't changed otherwise this should be a bug right?
