Javascript input text event

In my application I am using AJAX for form auto completion. As soon as the user enters the Id, the corresponding information from the database is displayed in the other fields automatically.

I am using <input type="text" onchange="somemethod()">

The problem with onchange event is, if the user chooses the Id from the previousely used values catched by the browser, it is not working.

Is there a better event than onchange for doing this. I tried using onblur event.But its not supported by some of the browsers. Or, is there a way to stop the browser from remembering the previousely entered values?

onblur is supported by every major browser I can think of.
