Want to know how to use a jQuery blur function for my SPNumberField, single line of text etc fields.I do not have the ID of the field, also how to get the ID for using the same in jQuery function?

Copying from the viewsource or F12 Developer Tools is not a good practice and I can't insert any span tag or div id for those fields as its a pure SP 2010 ListForm

You do not need id, any selector to get a DOM element will do.

I recall from my 2007 days you can get elements by searching for the last part of the name


or something like that

BTW you do not need jQuery either


this site will also educate you on how to attach events

  • I tried inside a Content Editor webpart by putting the blur function within the document. ready() but it didn't work. That's why I posted your answer as useful.
