I can use Events.Keypress to get a new key entered into a text field. however, by the time the event is received, the text field value is not yet updated with the key. I tried Events.Change, but it does not fire.

How would I capture the text field value after the key has been processed? remember it is not always old value plus the key char, because it can be a backspace key, or the cursor can be somewhere not at the end.

any way to do this other than construct the new field value by hand?

Use the keyup event.
