drop down list boxes don't support "on change" events

for drop down list boxes in webdynpro, i noticed that only a "onselect" event is exposed. The "onchange" event is not exposed.

With an "onselect" event, this only allows one to add code "onselect" and I noticed that this is triggered only if a user selects a drop down value using the mouse.

If a user uses the keyboard only and TABS into a drop down and thereafter changes the selection, the "onselect" event is not triggered.

Is there some way around this?

    Which version is this? When I do tab out of the dropdown field it will perform the action which is bound to "onSelect"

      Sorry about this, the behaviour has been zig-zagging between releases. The "onSelect" event must be fired, no matter what input means you use. If using the keyboard, it might be necessary to tab away from the drop-down in order to fire the event (HTML speak: event is fired in onblur).

      We are working to get this straight.
