Flip toggle doesn't get updated properly when javascript changes the value of the underlaying select and triggers events.

go to http://jquerymobile.com/demos/1.0a2/#docs/forms/forms-switch.html and use firebug to run:
$('#slider2').val('on').trigger('change'); //nothing happens. I expected it to work
$('#slider2').val('on').trigger('keyup'); //enlarges the "on" part, but doesn't move the slider

Thanks for taking the time to post this issue.

In the short term you might try changing the selectedIndex property of the vanilla DOM object and then triggering the change event. I was able to obtain the desired result in ff and Chrome. (sorry for the lack of a code snippet I'm posting from my phone)

Hopefully ill have a patch for this in the next day or so.

Upon further inspection using the built-in methods .change() and/or .keyup() in place of the trigger calls also appears to work. I'll look into why trigger doesn't produce the same effect.



The above works for me as does

Verified. Triggering the change event works fine. Thanks!
