Usage of an External link

I have a datagrid with a textfield and an exernal link. On change of the textfield a second (String) attribute will be filled with content. This second attribute is set as a URL attribute of the 'External link'. When saving the object and not close the form, the new URL link does not work. When saving the object and close the form, then re-open the object, then the URL link does work. I want to use the new URL when saving the object and not closing the form first. Is there something I am doing wrong?

Probably the widget does not listen to object refreshes. I suggest filing a feature request.
