Make the DropDownList's Up/Down Arrow Keydown Events Bindable When Expanded
Make up/down arrow keydown events fire a DropDownList change event when in the expanded state.

When a user clicks on the DropDownList, the list gets expanded. There is no change event fired for up/down arrow keydown events. I currently have to intercept the up/down keydown events manually. Having up/down arrow keydown events fire a change event would make the widget more intuitive and helpful for user interactions.

Hello Troy,

We are closing this feature request due to low interest.

Currently, navigating through the items with the Up/Down Arrow keys fires the DropDownList's "select" event. With an item selected, pressing Enter, or Tab, or clicking outside the widget fires the "change" event.
