Get current selected text input

Hi,

 

is there a possibilty to get the name of the current text input field?
I could use the onSelect event for each field to set a variable which i then can refer to.

But this only work if I select the field via mouse. If I switch through the fields with TAB, the onSelect event doesn't fire.

Any idea?

 

Regards

 

Stefan

@stefansc ,

To save you some trouble, it is not possible - you would need a trigger like OnFocus, which unfortunately does not exist.

@stefansc I am really not sure on the requirement - but to capture a input value, you can try "OnChange" instead of "OnSelect"

Hi,

 

but the OnChange event only fires when the field value changes, not when I select the field
