Triggers determine how actions are activated in pages and form fields. For example, you can specify a pop-up text box to display when your pointer moves over or clicks a button.

You can use the following triggers for form fields (not links or bookmarks):

  • Mouse Up
    When the mouse button is released after a click. This is the most commonly used button trigger, because it gives the user one last chance to drag the pointer off the button and not activate the action.
  • Mouse Down
    When the mouse button is clicked (without being released). In most cases, Mouse Up is the preferred trigger.
  • Mouse Enter
    When the pointer enters the field or play area.
  • Mouse Exit
    When the pointer exits the field or play area.
  • On Focus
    When the form field receives focus, either through a mouse action or tabbing.
  • On Blur
    When the focus moves to a different form field.
