    Hi Yoran,

    Good that you have posted about this. Just what I was searching for.

    Where did you find the event onsapfocusleave. Is there a link where I can find these events associated with TextArea control or any other control.

        Hi Yaron,

        I have the same problem coming up…..but I am afaraid your adviced solution is not working for me.

        However, live change event is working fine.

        I have a list in which I have binded the custom list item with data. So around 300 list items are getting created. Each list item has a inPlaceEdit  control with a textfield.

        Please help me with this.

        I am really stuck.

        Thanks a lot 🙂
