on a side note:
It's nice that some people are trying to improve the documentation 
(wiki, etc.),
but on the other hand, there are people (me) who even can't read the 
existing documentaion =:-/

The solution to my problem is the closeField message, which is only 
sent when the content *has* changed.

Thanks Stephen!


>check the field locking.
>from the docs:
>If the control is an unlocked field or a button whose menuMode is 
>"comboBox", the openField message is sent to it instead of the 
>focusIn message.
>A locked field receives the focusIn message when the user tabs to it 
>or otherwise makes it active (focused), or when text in it is 
>selected by a handler.
