Calling a Server side sub from the onBlur event

Hello Experts,

I have a form that needs to run a server-side function when the user tabs out of certain textboxes.  Right now it works great, except I'm using the TextChanged event.  What I really need is to run the same function, but with the onBlur event.

Now I realize that's asking client code to run a server function ... but that's really what I need here.  The textboxes are set to cause a postback, so it's already hitting the server.  The webpage is ajax enabled if that helps.  Any ideas?

Thanks!

Hello Experts,
Turns out this is far more tricky than I'd hoped.  This can be done, but the method is a little hacky.  To start you create the textbox for your onBlur event.  Then create a button to associate with the textbox.
Ex: txtFirstName & btnFirstName

In your Page load event, add this code:
Dim strEventHandler As String = Me.GetPostBackEventReference(Me.btnFirstName, "") Me.txtFirstName.Attributes.Add("onblur", strEventHandler)

Now, double click your button to create the event handler code.  Mission accomplished.  Enter in your blur code in the event handler of the button and it'll run on the blur event for the textbox.  Essentially, it's redirecting the client-side onBlur event of the textbox to the server-side click event of the button.  But sure to hide the button since since clicking it will cause the blur code to run.  And be sure to set the textbox as autopostback = true.
Hope this helps someone!
