Validate Text Entry Field Input

Aug 14, 2018

Is there a way to validate that a user typed something in a text entry field before control loses focus?

I was trying to change a button state from disabled to normal after a user "starts to type" in a text entry box. I can get it to change when they click on the box or click outside the box but not when typing actually begins.

Working in latest version of 360.

David, here is one of the articles I linked above courtesy of the wayback machine. 

The other article doesn't seem to have been archived, but it outlined a way to achieve the same thing, but without web objects. From memory, Zsolt used jQuery to locate Storyline's text entry fields and monitor them in real time.
