I was wondering how I can make a form save the changes after leaving any field, thus making all the changes made to be live after focus is away from a given item. I tried a commit within a post-item trigger, but that is apparently a restriceted command. Any ideas? Thanks!

Well, one idea that I use to overcome the restricted command, is to create a timer in the post-item trigger that would expire in one milli-second. Then I write the commit in the when-timer-expired trigger.

This usually works. Let me know if it doesn't.
