  2. Hello,

    What you might try doing is writing a Javascript function that will open a frame with the address information on the field's onblur action. Something like this:

    <script language=javascript>
      function showAddressInformation()
        var custid = document.forms[0].customerid.value;'show_address_info.jsp?customerid=' + custid);


    <form action=blah.jsp method=post>
      Customer ID : <input type=text name=customerid onblur='showAddressInformation();'>


    This will work on all browsers. If you are wanting to show this information on the same page, you will have to write browser-specific code to get it to work in both browsers (IE and Netscape).

    Another alternative is to just write a small applet which represents this field. But that approach is probably overkill. Just open the window on the 'onblur' event... and that should take care of your problem domain.
