I need Server Roundtrip on Datepicker selection.

Hi All,

<b>My requirement:</b>On an DateField (CL_HTMLB_INPUT ), if you select a datepicker and select a value, I need a server roudtrip i.e submit of the form.

<b>Code changes I did:</b>with the javascript, I added a code ,

lv_dateField.attachEvent('onchange', function(){


return false;


<b>Result:</b>If I manually change the field and move away from the datefield 'onchange' event is triggered.

<b>Unsolved problem:</b>

If I use Datepicker and select a new value , and move from the fields i.e change focus 'onchange' event is not triggered.

Your help is highly appreciated.

    Have you tried attaching the onkeyup, onkeypress or blur event instead of the onchange? onchange requires the user to leave the field first.
