I have a form where a field is limited as to the number of words.

I found a JavaScript that does what I need as far as giving me a Word Count, however it will only show the results on exit, not while the user is typing.

I've tried changing the event to "change" or "enter" and other options, but that breaks the code.

How can I fix it so it gives me live updates?

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

 

The code is currently:

var cnt = word_count(this.rawValue);
	WordCountResult.rawValue = cnt.toString();


function word_count(textParam)
{
	textParam = textParam.replace(/^\s*|\s*$/g,'');
  	if (textParam) 
  		return textParam.split(/\s+/).length;
	else
  		return 0;
}

Place your function in the change event. Then call as word_count(xfa.event.fullText); this.rawValue will not work in this context.
