I would like to know on the TextInput component what are the
proper events to handle when the user leaves the TextInput
If the the user exits the component, is there an OnExit
I am confused and cannot find a good declarative source for
the events and usuage for TextInput and ComboBox. I also cannot
seem to get the change() event to work on a combobox if we
programmatically set the combobox value from a lookup.
For the TextInput, you want to use the focusOut event. The
help in Flex Builder details all these events.
The change event for any component is fired only on user
interaction, not programmatic changes. If you want an event for
programmatic changes as well, try the valueCommit event. However,
note that the event handler cannot change the value of the
component or it'll cause infinite recursion.
