Run javascript on text entry


#1

I have a text entry area on my site where the user can enter text. I’m wanting to run some javascript every time a user enters a new character in the text field. This will enable me to assess what the user is typing as they type it and ensure it meets certain rules.

I cannot test this just yet . But you can use jQuery to bind to the textarea do a google for. “textarea on change event”

Where you will find many answers using it

Update.

Check the on() http://api.jquery.com/on/
