ISSUE-50: Setting input and textarea element direction through browser UI should set the dir attribute and trigger oninput event

Setting input and textarea element direction through browser UI should set the dir attribute and trigger oninput event

State:
CLOSED
Product:
html
Raised by:

Description:
This is a part of the proposals made by the "Additional Requirements for Bidi in HTML" W3C First Public Working Draft. For a full description of the use cases, please see http://www.w3.org/International/docs/html-bidi-requirements/#set-direction. Here is the proposal made there:

The HTML specification should state that when the user agent user interface allows the user to set the direction of <input> and <textarea> elements, it will:

- Set the element's dir attribute value accordingly.

- Trigger the oninput event after the dir attribute has been set. Even though no actual input took place, the user changed the recommended interpretation of the input already collected.
