Actions specific to a text field - e.g., On Get Focus, etc.?

Hi all,

I'd like to be able to respond to a text field getting focus, losing focus, and receiving input. The actions associated with the text field component are the same as those for the button component, which doesn't make a lot of sense. (Double-clicking a text-entry field?)

I'd like the following actions or the equivalent for a text field: "On Character Typed," "On Get Focus," "On Lose Focus." Lacking these, is there another way to do this? I'm mocking up a mobile interface that changes when the search field receives/loses focus, and would like to simulate an auto-complete dropdown as the user types a predetermined word.
