BODY onBlur event?

Hi, I'm having some trouble with the "onBlur" event in the BODY tag.
Ideally, what I want to happen is that when someone leaves window A,
window A executes a command. I had put

<body onBlur="savePag e();">

I have a couple of problems. On IE 6 (win2000), whenever I put the
cursor focus on a textfield within window A, the "savePage" function
is invoked. And on Mozilla Filefox 0.9.1, the event never launches
even when I leave the window.

Does anyone know how I can solve these respective problems?

Thanks in advance, - Dvae

For Mozilla you might want to use
window.onblur = function (evt) {
that should work with IE too but of course the original problem is not
solved by that, namely that exactly one object can have the focus
meaning when you focus on some object in the window the window looses
focus and thus the onblur handler is called. One way to try to work
around that is to have
var tid;
window.onblur = function (evt) {
tid = setTimeout('sav ePage();', 20);
and then to make sure that every element in the page that can get the
focus cancels the timeout e.g.
<input type="text" onfous="clearTi meout(tid);">

Then coding the body onblur is definitively not best. Depending on what
is your webpage context, design requirements, etc., coding/resorting to
onbeforeunload event (which is supported by NS 7.2, Mozilla 1.6+, MSIE
6) might be what you need. Here, we don't even know if window A is a
script-initiated window or a non-script initiated window nor which type
of command.

The site said to use Internet Explorer 5 or better... so I switched to
Mozilla 1.7.3 :)

Does the tab key override the onblur event? I have a text field whose input I validate on blur, and set the focus back again if invalid. Effectively, I do not want the user to move out of the control unless the data entered is validated. This works fine, when I try to click on some other control. However, on tabkey press, the onblur does get fired, but the focus also moves onto the next control. It gives a user experience of hopping onto...

Hi I'm trying to create a "roll-up" effect when a window loses focus and then "roll-down" when it regains focus. This statement works properly with every browser I can get my hands on EXCEPT WinIE6.

Hi All, I have a web form which performs certain actions upon moving focus away from a field. However, if the user clicks the top corner 'X' icon to close the window, the onBlur event still fires. If, for example, the onBlur event was an alert() popup: when the user clicks the close window icon, the window closes and then the alert pops up. Clearly, if the user closed the window, there is no point to performing the onBlur event.
