It's NOT the concern of the presentation layer to set the values of a wdiget. 
IMHO this is an absolute DON'T as it introduces side-effects (presentationlayer 
changes the data model). Try to set the widget value using the controller. I 
guess this will solve your problem.

Also make sure that the set value is equal to the key of the item of the 
selection list.
