    1) Please could you explain the difference between the ‘select’ and ‘change’ events, on jqxDropDownList?
    The API docs appear to contain exactly the same description, its not clear which event I should handle.

    2) Should the change or select event fire, if I programatically update the listboxes value or selectedIndex?

    
    $("#list").jqxDropDownList.val(x);
    $("#list").jqxDropDownList({selectedIndex: 2 });
    

    3) Is there any difference at all between calling

    
    $("#list").jqxDropDownList('selectIndex', 2 );
    vs
    $("#list").jqxDropDownList({selectedIndex: 2 });
    

    Thanks

    Hello carpii,

    When changing the value of the DropDownList it is fire the both events, but if you use arrows (up/down) and highlight different items this will fire ‘select’ event.
    The easiest way to understand the difference between them is to use in the one example both.
