You should remove the reRender attribute from the actionSupport. If this attribute is present - the page will not be reloaded, but only an area from the reRender attribute is re-rendered.

<apex:actionSupport event="onchange" action="{!selectlist}" />
  • @user123 It is because the page is reloaded. You can use "reRender" attribute together with some void action method without apex:actionRegion. Then the selected context will not gone. It another technique, you should give it a try :) Mar 14, 2016 at 9:30
