I am using FoxPro to do some automation of an external Internet explorer page. I can set the value just fine, but can't seem to get the page to run whatever code it wants to that in this case makes visible another select - option pick list to choose from.

The event seems to be the onchange event, but I can't seem to call it properly to get it to work.

ie.Document.getElementsByTagName('select').[1].value='somevalue'
