If i set a group element with size1, so it acts like a select box, the requestUpdate feature does not work.

I prefer using group over select fields because much less data is loaded from persistence. How can i fix this? I thould about added a custom wizard, that simply replaces the html for the group item and adds some javascript, but i dont know if there is an event i can use.

A onchange on the hidden input or the select does not work because the value is set by Javascript.

It looks like this could only be done in TYPO3\CMS\Recordlist\Browser\ElementBrowser (::762?)

The only way to achieve this without manipulating the core would be to set a javascript interval checking if the field has changed but i think this should go to the core.

When a group value is changed an the field is set as requestUpdate Field it should be updated.

Maybe simply add a dataset-attribute to the target input field that says requestUpdate=1 and if the new value is set from TCEMain the form is submitted like it is a select field.
