Event Handling in Abstract Portal Component


Hi Friends,

I am using HTMLB Classlib in an Abstract Portal Component to develop a Dropdownlistbox. Now I want to handle the event of change of selection in this dropdown. However, this event is not getting captured. Sample code is as follows:

public class dropdownsimple extends AbstractPortalComponent


public void onClick(Event event)



public void doContent(IPortalComponentRequest request, IPortalComponentResponse response)


IPageContext myContext1 = PageContextFactory.createPageContext(request, response);

Form myForm = myContext1.createFormDocument("CRMForm");

GridLayout myGrid = new GridLayout();

DropdownListBox drp = new DropdownListBox("drp");

drp.addItem("Key 1","Item 1");

drp.addItem("Key 2","Item 2");


myGrid.addComponent(1, 1, drp);





I am able to see the dropdown box along with values when I preview the PAR iView created from this component. Please let me know how to capture the event of change of selection in the dropdown?
