jQuery: how to detect changes in HTML input field?

The best way to detect changes in HTML input field in jQuery if to bind the input event of the input field:

$('#myInputField').on('input', function() {
  	// The input has changed, do something

});

You may also extend the event list:

$('#myInputField').on('input propertychange paste', function() {
  	// The input has changed, do something

});

You may also detect the change event, but it will only fire after the input field lost focus.
