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.
