jQuery paste event not working

In this example I wanted to do somenthing every time the input value is changed by typing, pasting or set by code from another event.

$('#foo [name="vid"]').on('change keyup paste', function(){
   if($(this).val()){
      //do something
   }
});

Unfortunately that obvious and intuitive solution is not going to work. To solve the problem.

$('#foo [name="vid"]').on('change keyup paste', function(){
   let $self=$(this);
   setTimeout(function(){
      if($self.val()){
         //do something
      }
   }, 0);
});

setTimeout could be set with a greater value than zero with the advantage of not doing something heavy at every keypress. So, 2 birds with a stone.
