Yup I added event when mouse clicks outside of the input button, I also check that the dropdown selection is not empty when updating and I made an "Update" button in case of any weird scenario where the output might not be changed after editing the input field.

Now I'm at the actual hard part. The algorithm to get the CRC code appears is a lot harder than I first thought. It'll take me some time to get this working properly. I need to parse some hex strings (bytes) with spaces in between them and then examine them in a weird fashion.
