I am working on a small project to do some complex calculations. The interface contains three text fields and a pop-up button that the user inputs the information used in the calcs. When I tab from field to field, everything works smoothly (i.e., a table updates accordingly and the pop-up changes as well). However, when I click (or double-click) in a text field to change a value, nothing is updated until I click somewhere else in the project window.
I am currently trapping the “action” event because I was hopping that would work better than the “end editing” event. I get the same results however.
If I could see what events are being generated, that may help me figure out a better course of action.
Any thoughts are greatly appreciated,

A small project in what? A web browser, FileMaker Pro database, Excel, AppleScript Studio? Where are the fields you are tabbing through? It makes a difference. If you are in FileMaker Pro, you cannot capture the events. You could in a web browser (if you can write the code for the page, you could add onFocus() functions, etc). I’m not sure about AppleScritp Studio.
