Pega data-onchange and data-keydown issue

Hey all I am at a loss as to how to go about firing this data-change and data-keydown of this element:

<input  data-test-id="20180656816" 
        data-ctl="["TextInput"]" 
        id="L_ID" 
        maxlength="15" 
        validationtype="required" 
        value="" 
        name="$PpyWorkPage$pL$pL_ID" 
        class="leftJustifyStyle" 
        data-change="[["postValue",[":event"]],["refresh", ["otherSection","RecordInformation", "", "&=", "", "LIDOnChange,",":event","","pyWorkPage.L"]]]" 
        data-keydown="[["postValue",[":event"],,"tab"],["refresh", ["otherSection","RecordInformation", "", "&=", "", "LIDOnChange,",":event","","pyWorkPage.L"],,"tab"],["postValue", [":event"],,"enter"],["refresh", ["otherSection","RecordInformation","", "&=", "", "LIDOnChange,",":event","","pyWorkPage.L"],, "enter"]]"
        data-changed="false" 
        style="background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);" 
        type="text">

When I am using IBM RFT (WebUI) I input the letters (via RFT) into this textfield (L_ID) and it does not seem to trigger the data-change and/or data-keydown.

It seems that sending keys to the browsers' text field never registers as if a human was typing it on a keyboard. In other words it treats it as no letters were typed and therefore nether data attributes were fired off. Tabs, clicks, focus(), blur() seem not to have any effect on the text field via jQuery.

Doing this manually - clicking the textfield with the mouse, entering some letters and either tab out or click on another textfield makes it work as it should - but that doesn't help me in this regards as I need to have it automate.

Is there any way to populate that L_ID so that it populates a label next to it (which is what happens when it does do the data-onchange and data-keydown actions.
