Force onblur event

I have a window and an iframe. In the iframe there are text fields that update using the onblur event. If I click anywhere in either of the windows everything works as it should but if I click a nav button, the script doesn't have time to run. I have considered putting a timer on the nav buttons but that would add an unnessary delay to normal use. My other thought is to force the onblur event somehow when the mouse is exiting the iframe or moving over a div.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

i have had the same problem before and what i do is just change the text of the button or change the image to say 'Loading..." also you can change the cursor to an hour glass so the user understands. Another idea would be to have an onclick event on your nav button and after everything is done updaating window.location.href over to where you need to be

Good Luck.

Hi,

try this..

<script type="text/javascript">
var globalTakeFocus=null;

function setFocus(ref) {
globalTakeFocus=ref;
setTimeout("globalTakeFocus.focus();globalTakeFocus.select()",100);
}

function validateField(ref) {
if (ref.value != "ok") {
alert("Value must be \"ok\"");
setFocus(ref);
}
}
</script>
</head>

<form>
<input onchange="validateField(this)"><br>
