Why no closeField messages sent?

Do you need to? Closefield is sent when you change the contents of field
manually - the put command will not change it. Select will not change it
either, as that does not actually cause a change.

However, if you need it to, you can just add...

  Send CloseField to field "Field Name" 

At the end of your handler - that'll send it.

Subject: Why no closeField messages sent?

If I do this from a handler

  select char 1 of fld 1
  select char 2 of fld 2

an exitField message is sent from fld 1. But I cannot programatically 
select a fld, modify it, exit it and generate a closeField message.

What am I doing wrong? Is it possible? If not, why not?:)
