addEventListener / comboBox - not working programmatically!


I have a comboBox with an EventListener:

rhythmTypeListener = new Object();
rhythmTypeListener.change = function(evt) {
	trace(“run code”);
rhythmType_Combo.addEventListener("change", rhythmTypeListener);

All of this works until I select the comboBox’s index programmatically;

rhythmType_Combo.selectedIndex = 6;

The comboBox changes to the approrite text but the EventListener is never called.

Why is this, and is there a way?
