Should the .TextInput event on TextBox react to manually setting the Text of the control?

The second LINQPad Controls sample, "Simple controls and events".

Behavior I see: Whenever I type in the textbox, the content is dumped. However, when I click the button the text is changed, yet the content is not dumped.

Is this by design? I was expecting this to be handled like I just typed in the control. In fact, if I paste something into the textbox, this is handled and dumped.


  • The TextInput event is a forward of the JavaScript onInput event, which responds to interactive changes, but not programmatic changes.

    Do you think a TextChanged event (which would respond to both) would be more useful?
