    Text Box Question

    Hello Experts,

    Is there a way a text box on a form can trigger an event when something is entered before the user presses enter?

    Example: I have a Next Button at the bottom of a form the user clicks to move to the next question. The Next Button is not enabled until something is entered. I have no trouble with Option Buttons, however, a text box requires the enter key to be used to trigger and event. I hope to find a way so the user can use the next button after entering something in the text box without the need to press enter.

    Thanks

    Use the key-up event to enable the button

    It worked perfectly. Thanks again! Google is good, but you are far, far, better.
