I am new to Javascript and have written some code that uses the onBlur event with a text box.  The problem is that when the user presses the enter key, nothing happens.  Apparently unBlur does nto fire when the user clicks enter.

How can I code my application so the event fires when either the mouse is used to click another field, or the enter key is pressed?

Does not work:
<input type="text" id="buyqty" value="" onblur="UpdatePrice()">Enter the Quantity to Buy<br>
