issue with onblur and onClick

let me see if I can explain this clearly:

I have a form. Among other form elements, there's a text input field (with it's onBlur event) and an "Submit/Approve" button (with it's onClick event).

What's supposed to happen is when a user entered text, once they get out of that field, for some validation to kick off. This validation is to pass the form to another page, like this:
document.myform.action = "Apova1.jsp?mode=ChkAcc&mcu="+Mcu+"&obj="+Obj;
document.myform.method = "post";
document.myform.submit();

In trying to debug this what I seem to find out is this:
- when I tab out of the field, the onblur event is kicked off and it works ok.
- however if after I enter text, then without tabbing out, I click the Approve button, it does not seem to execute the 3 lines of code I mentioned above, thus the validation is not done.

Any ideas/suggestions what's wrong here?

Try to set the form's action and validation on the onsubmit handler of the form.
