I'm using a selectOneMenu and have it doing some rerendering of page sections when the selection is changed.
For this I'm keying of the onchange event (makes sense) and for the most part it works.
so, like this:

However it seems to only fire an onchange event when you use the mouse to make the change.
Curiously, scrolling up and down the list with the up and down arrows doesn't fire this event, although the actual selection in the input control changes.

I'd like this to work in the same manner. If the input selection changes regardless how, so should the corresponding fields that are targeted for rerendering.

Can someone provide some assistance?

thanks!

Hey Max,
Well, in fact that's it. Not sure why my prior testing didn't see the onkeyup event working.
But it is working like a champ. So not only the arrow keys, but any alpha changes as the result of pressing normal keys.

thanks.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
