Hi guys

Just wondering if someone could point me quickly into the right direction as to why strut-tags autocompleter onclick is not working?

This is a snippet of my page:

But the onchange="viewCompanies();" doesn't execute the JS function. Change the autocompleter to use a standard <s:textfield> and it works fine, the problem there is it would
require the user to know the exact name of the parent company which isn't very pratical. Looksing at the API ( > onchange) it exists, but doesn't seem to work.

Cheers in advance
