Problem with GUIKit

Does anyone know what the eventname for row selection in a Widget[table] is,
in Version 5.1? 


Also, if I use the syntax suggested in GUIKitGuide.nb to list all the
eventnames, methodnames etc, I get an error message:




ref = GUIRun[



            "preferredSize"RWidget["Dimension", {"width"R200,



                  PropertyValue["model",Name-> "myTableModel"]

                  }, Name->"myTable"]





In: "WidgetNames" /. GUIInformation[ref]

Out: {myTable,myTableModel} --- this works OK


In: "PropertyNames" /. GUIInformation[ref,"inputField"]

Out: GUIRun::err: The following GUIKit runtime error occurred :

target inputField was not resolved to a valid object instance.


The same error message occurs for:


Select["MethodNames" /. GUIInformation[ref,"inputField"],

  StringMatchQ[#,"*text*", IgnoreCaseRTrue]&]


And for:


"EventNames" /. GUIInformation[ref,"inputField"]


Any thoughts on how I can find the relevant MethodNames etc?
