Both Trevor Devore and I have long wished for a textChanged message.  I can't recall if Trevor added this as a feature request to RQCC but you might take a look to vote...

I'm working on my custom scroller library. I want to trap a message anytime
the text in a field is changed via script.
To my knowledge, there is no way to do this using a built-in Rev message.

In otherwords, of course openField, closeField, exitField don't work as
there's no clicking going on by the user.

selectionChanged doesn't work either.

Any ideas anyone?
