ajax reRender when inputText value change occurs

Hi all,

I am trying to implement an Ajax reRender of some components in a JSF web page for a special situation that I haven't found a solution for...

When I press the Enter key on an InputText, I wish to reRender certain components, but ALSO, I want to enter a ValueChangeListener method in my backing bean, since the old and new values of what the InputText contains is important for me.

Previously, when I just wanted to manage Ajax reRender in an InputText, if I don't mind about new and old values of the component's text, I could use the actionListener for an Ajax commandButton associated with the InputText, which I 'clicked' via the onkeypress event in this component, but now my problem is to keep the ValueChangeListener method, OR to get around the problem, change to an ActionListener, and still manage to keep the old and new values of what my InputText holds...

Any ideas?
