onselect event for drop down

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?

    I encountered the same problem.

    I tried a workaround by making the bound context element a calculated attribut. Nonetheless, still nothing happens (the setter of the calculated bound context attribut is not called) when the user changes the value in the drop-down box using the keyboard and leaving the field by TAP or the mouse.

    Any other ideas?

    Do you know if there are plans to provide a "onChange" type of event for this UI element in a future Service Pack?


    Regards, Nick.
