jQuery: Fire only once with multiple binds

This fires twice if I click on my radio button:

 $('.xyz input').bind('change click', function(){
  alert('Hello');
 });

Open in new window


How can I get it to fire only once, either if is clicked on or changed?

use this:-
$('.xyz input').click(function(){
  alert('Hello');
 });

Open in new window

I agree with BuggyCoder.  The change event is only triggered on radio buttons in IE (or at least some versions of it) after the radio button loses focus, so it's best to just use the click event.

Will click fire even if the radio is changed by the keyboard?

Yes, the click event will fire even if the keyboard is used to select the radio button instead of the mouse.
