HELP !! selectedIndex value for dropdown listbox is wrong


Level 1

Hi all,

I have a form in LS ES8.2  that contains a dropdown box who's items are initalized from a xml dataconnection. The list contains 14 items.

When I select any one of the first 8 (indexes 0-7) items the value of 'selectedIndex' comes back correctly for a related 'validate' event.

When I select any of the remaining items (indexes 8-13) the value of selectedIndex  comes back as '7' in the 'validate' event.

The prior 'change' event under xfa.event.change does infact contain the correct item text for the item in the (8-13) range but by the time the validate event occurs, the value of selectedIndex is set back to 7 and the content of the listbox ends up that way too.
