Dear,



I'm building some validations in my form, using javascript.



I staretd with using the Validate event however that is called every time someone does basically anything on the form. It's too global and to non-discriminating.



I have 6 particular fields where I do checks on the values entered there, but if I use the Validate event I can only work in a couple of them. I could use IFs and save all the values in hidden fields and then check on every validate which one of them changed, but this would be much too cumbersome.



Is there a function I can call to see where the focus is at the moment? Where the point of the keyboard is?



I started using the change event, but this checks too often and I had issues with retrieving values from the field.



Any ideas?



Thanks in advance,

The Exit event would be the correct answer.
