The detail I think he missed is the namespace on the event attribute.

Hi Susan,

'xforms-select' is targeted at the xf:item selected, not the xf:select1.
For example:

	<xforms:select1 ref="myValue">
		<xforms:label>Choose one</xforms:label>
		<xforms:item>
			<xforms:label>Item 1</xforms:label>
			<xforms:value>v1</xforms:value>
		</xforms:item>
		<xforms:item>
			<xforms:label>Item 2</xforms:label>
			<xforms:value>v2</xforms:value>
			<xforms:action ev:event="xforms-select">
				<xforms:send submission="debug" />
			</xforms:action>
		</xforms:item>
	</xforms:select1>

This would only do the submission if "Item 2" was selected, but not if
"Item 1" was selected. ('xforms-select' would also go to an xf:case, in
an xf:switch.)


> ... not "xforms-value-changed".

'xforms-value-changed' is sent to *any* control that it bound to
instance data that has changed, so Jonathan's example is correct.
Assuming that his markup is correct (no missing prefixes, etc.), then he
just needs to check that the implementation he is using supports it.

Regards,

Mark
