As Ken has confirmed, there is no way to change the sequence in which
the event handlers are triggered.

Acually you say you're using the >onKey< event. What if you use the
>key< event in combinatin with >onChangeCommitted<?
In the >key< event handler you could trap the TAB key and perform your
code before >onChangeCommitted< gets fired?

Another idea is to cancel the >onChangeCommitted< event after you have
trapped the TAB key in the combobox, and re-set it when your action
following the the TAB key is done?

My two cents ...
Kind regards, Heinz
