I am finding that DateField objects do not seem to fire change events when they are updated. I am trying to use change listeners to keep field values in sync with model values in a uniform way, but DateFields don't seem to want to cooperate.

Here is a simple example.

FormPanel fp = new FormPanel();
final DateField df = new DateField();

df.addListener(Events.Change, new Listener() {

public void handleEvent(FieldEvent p_event)
MessageBox.alert("Date Field Changed", df.getValue(), null);


The change event never fires when I render this guy. In addition, I have tried firing the change event myself from the setValue() method, but that seems to wreak havoc with the widget a bit. Not sure why, but I am looking at the internals now.
