Submitting dropzone editable when user clickes somewhere else

I am using http://www.dropzonejs.com/

The problem is that the user does not always find it intuitive that he should click enter to submit, or the OK button. He just clicks somewhere else on the page and expects the editable to submit. How can I create the effect that he wants? Which means submitting the editable when he clicks somewhere else on the page, leaving focus from the editable?

The link you provided does not seem to match what you are describing - there is only a DZ that uploads as soon as you drop something on it.

I am not sure i understand the thinking behind having a submit on click anywhere else. If there is an Ok button and the user does not know to click it then I would have thought the problem is with the user - and a simple line of text giving instructions would solve the problem. Relying on a click anywhere on the page is not at all intuitive - it sounds like you are going backwards to solve the problem.

Start by showing us a page that has the exact problem and we can take it from there.

Can't show you the exact page just like that.
I don't agree that the problem can be set with the user. User GUI's are developed for users. If they aren't intuitive, then they are wrong.

And yes you are right. I gave you the wrong link. Somehow in my mind I mixed dropzone with jeditable.
I think this would be the correct link: http://www.appelsiini.net/projects/jeditable

No wonder I didn't find anythin on Google when I was using dropzone as a keyword instead.

The answer is here:

But that would be impossible for you to know when I was mixing dropzone with jeditable :)

Ah - that makes more sense. Auto submit on an editable field is a definite UI requirement.  Glad you got sorted.
