values in htmlb:dropdownListBox

Hello experts,

as I could not find a solution to my problem in the web, may I ask you for help.

I have built a small MVC test application. My view contains a htmlb:dropdownListBox, a button to submit and an inputField to display the selection. My problem: the selected value of this box is not transfered into the model attribute and the box does not keep the selected value when I click the submit-button. My understanding was, that the model is bound to the view so that the selected value should be transferred after submit to the model-attribute automatically. May be this is wrong. Could you help me to complete my coding?

Here the details for you:

--- Controllerclass ----
method do_init.
  data: slistentry type ihttpnvp.
  me->model ?= create_model( class_name = 'zcl_test_ddfeld_mo'
                             model_id   = 'test_ddfeld_mo' ).
  clear slistentry.
  slistentry-value  = 'Entry 1'.
  slistentry-name = 'e1'.
  append slistentry to me->model->dd_values.
  slistentry-value  = 'Entry 2'.
  slistentry-name = 'e2'.
  append slistentry to me->model->dd_values.
  slistentry-value  = 'Entry 3'.
  slistentry-name = 'e3'.
  append slistentry to me->model->dd_values.

method do_request.
  data: view type ref to if_bsp_page.
  dispatch_input( ).
  view ?= create_view( view_name = 'default.htm' ).
  view->set_attribute( name = 'model' value = me->model ).
  call_view( view ).

method do_handle_event.
  if htmlb_event_ex is bound.
    case htmlb_event_ex->event_server_name.
      when 'onClick_btn1'.
* Here further code will be implemented later
      when others.
