On Change Event

I have a form displaying several fields from a CFQuery.  The user needs the ability to edit the field.  Once the user has completed their edits and clicked outside the field text-box, I want the record to be updated on the database...  is there a OnChange event that can do this in ColdFusion?  If so do you have an example???

This is a trciky one, and I dont think you would want to do it this way.
Anyway, you could do

<input type="text" name="blah" onBlur="document.yourFormName.submit();">

I wld not recommend this logic

Its better u use a submit button for this - so user knows that if incase he mistypes something he can always go back to it & edit it - without having to bother abt it being submitted "onBlur".

Just A Thought !

but if u want to go ahead with it - u already have the answere above.

OnChange is a JAVASCRIPT event, which is client side.  CF is server side.  The only way you'll be able to use OnChange is to force a submit to the web server (either a hidden frame/ popup window or just a plain form submission).  The browser paradigmn is well established and users are trained to look for buttons to click on.  I would put a submit button on the page and use the browser like most users are used to using it.
