When using a User List Entry widget it appears not to update its bound properties unless called by an event used by the User List Entry interface. For example if the widget being used is a text widget that has its text property bound to a text variable then the text will not update when the variable is changed.

Steps to Reproduce
  1. Download the attached project
  2. Open the project
  3. Open the level "Main"
  4. Play in Editor

Result: The Text does not update when the bound variable is changed (it will only update when clicking a widget in the list (This calls the event On Item Selection Changed ))
Expected: The text would update whenever the bound text variable is changed
