onchange event is not fired for select element

Dec 12, 2012 at 6:16 PM


I have several elements similar to this this:

<select name="name" tabIndex="25" id="ID" onchange="SetListValue(this, 'card_cardType')">

When CUITe selects the item and changes the value, the onchange event associated with this item is not being fired. This is causing validation problems on my page.

Is there a way to force this event to be run?

Hi Dennis,

Can you provide sample code that can reproduce the issue please?

For example, what method(s) are you using to select the item?

Thank you.

I've worked around the problem. I think this issue is specific to the code and isn't something coming from CUITe. To workaround the problem, I just update the fields twice, that seems to ensure that the code gets validated. It doesn't take much longer so it doesn't bother me that I have to do that.

Unfortunately, I can't provide sample code to reproduce the problem for this scenario.

I could not reproduce this issue.

It may be an error with your HTML\JavaScript syntax.

For example, the code in your onchange event handler does not end with a semicolon.

Here is a sample unit test that works without issues:

<select id="selectAndAlertOnChange" onchange="alert('onchange');">
        public void SelectItem_UsingHtmlComboBoxThatAlertsOnChange_Succeeds()
            CUITe_BrowserWindow bWin = CUITe_BrowserWindow.Launch(CurrentDirectory + "/TestHtmlPage.html", "A Test");
            CUITe_HtmlComboBox cmb = bWin.Get<CUITe_HtmlComboBox>("Id=selectAndAlertOnChange");
