Issue/Introduction

The form trigger "onChange" only fires once tabbing or clicking out of a field, not on typing. Is this correct?

Environment

Release : 17.2

Component : CA SERVICE CATALOG

Resolution

This has been confirmed as correct behaviour by Development.

The trigger onChange for a text element is called once the typing has completed and you either tab or click to leave the field.

This is so that incomplete typing is not affected - either by slow javascript causing a responsiveness issue, or by functions that affect the entry interfering with typing.
