Team,
am facing an issue during my edit page where i have a text box gives me a trouble during validation.

I am calling an onchangeTotal() function , when ever there is a change in value via onchange event.  when ever there is a text entered , the total column is updated dynamically. i would like to prevent it . do all my validation after i tab out the cell.
because when there is an invalid value entered , i need to print ***** in the total section based on the value.

i have attached a screen shot where it updates the total section with Nan.

Please help.

......do all my validation after i tab out the cell.
Use onblur instead of onchange.

Sorry for the delay.

I have added the code snippet for the input text:

input type="text" class="inputs txtr" maxLength="12" name="txt_${participant.ssn}_${plan.planId}_${contractID}_${sourceID}_${source.UIName}"                                                                                                      value="${source.contributionAmt}" id="id${contractID}_input_${sourceID}_${source.UIName}" relSrc="${sourceID}_${source.UIName}"                                                                                                 relCtr="${contractID}"  onchange="javascript:calculateTotal('${contractID}','${sourceID}','${source.UIName}')" />
                                                                                    </div>

I have uploaded the JSP page as HTML and JS script page as well.

Please do let me know if you need any additional info to dig this issue.

Thank you

Team,
I have an validation in place to report when we enter invalid value in the text box.
various conditional check to NAN & < 0 and so on.
The point here is that when i enter the value in the text box and tab out it , validation is not occurring and when i enter value and click on any place in the web page it works and prints **** in the total section.
attached the screen print to have some details on the issue.

Can someone point out the issue with the script?.

Thanks

Team,
i was able to figure whats is going on in my JS function and was able to fix it.
The root cause was one of the CSS class and my existing JS file has a check

// column total
                  var columnTotal = 0;
                  $( '.rowaggregate' ).each( function()
                  {
                        columnTotal += parseFloat( $( this ).html() );
                  } );
It was very frustrating to find out this issue and happy to resolve it. Thanks a lot for this great forum.
