In addition, the validate event is triggered when the Enter key is pressed (for a text field), which also commits the value. Exactly when else would you expect the trigger to occur and what is your validation routine doing, exactly?
I am sending the request to validate the form from a webpage. When this request comes in a custom validation routine is ran that runs through all required fields. The field that has focused will not get updated at this point. If I had a button inside of my form that I clicked then the focus would change and cause the field to get updated. However, I can't seem to force the field to fields to update its value.
I see. I'm afraid I don't have any suggestions for you.
