Subject:   What about the onchange event?

I'm curious to see how the ValueChangedEvent works. Does it help with statelessness at all? I'd like to see an example with a simple drop-down menu and a field that gets changed based on the selection in the drop-down. (Or something like that.)

How and when does the event get passed to the servlet?

Is it possible to add other events, such as onFocus?

This is one of the big issues to solve to get a real 'desktop' style application on the web. We had to move to Flash to get the interactivity we required for our application.

Thanks for the info!
