How Can i get the value of textbox & Store it in String. !

I basically want to Store textbox value in Session without Redirecting the Page or clicking on Any Button.

So, to Store in Session we need String Data type values.

For that I Want to get textbox value in String Variable. !

Can anyone tell me how can it be Done ???

OK, no submission and no button click. What event will trigger the activity you want?

Obviously a javascript onchange or onblur event on the textfield to trigger an ajax call to the server to pass in the value just typed in.

No button clicks.
The page doesn't reload/redirect

I agree. Here's the link:
