Segmented control Action event

Is the action event of a segmented control NOT supposed to fire when the segment is programmatically changed? It seems according to the language reference that it should.

I use a segmented control to change a page on a page panel. Clicking the segment fires the action event. Setting it programmatically does not. I searched feedback and the forums and saw no mention of this.

Move your code from the Action event into a method and call this method from both the Action event and from the method where you set the SegmentedControl programmatically.

You could also enter a request into Feedback, so that the docs get updated.
