I want to write some code when a text time is changed but cursor is still in the text item. like a text item user types 'a' and trigger gets fired.

I don't think you can.

Triggers are : 'KEY_NEXT_ITEM'
'POST_TEXT_ITEM'

or if u exists in a new item then
use 'WHEN_NEW_ITEM_INSTANCE' triggers.

Right, but these only fire when you exit the item (too late) or when a new record instance is being created (too early), not if you do not navigate. Besides, POST-TEXT-ITEM is a leftover from previous versions, I'd suggest to go for the WHEN-VALIDATE-ITEM trigger, you cannot evaluate a value of an item until the user has finished typing, right?

If you'd tell us what the required functionality is, we could try finding an alternative solution.
