[jQuery] Calling event code programmatically

I have a dropdown with ID “show_id” in my JSP. I have a .js file included in JSP which has following code.



Whenever I change the value of dropdown (show_id), above piece of code is getting executed automatically.

Now I have a requirement where I need to change the value of dropdown(show_id) programmatically using JavaScript. But when I do that above piece of code does not get executed.

How to get above code executed?




My blood is tested +ve for Java.

The onchange event does not get fired when you change the value with JavaScript. Looks like you are using jQuery so you can trigger it.

$("#showId").change();
