Thank you for this great forum!
I have a question.

I have a PDF/FDF where a user(student)
in a browser can fill out an application and hit a save button to send data to be saved to the database. This works great, but the problem is that the
student sometimes forget to press the save button,
next time they log in they think they lost the data
they entered.

How can warn a user that there are pending changes
when they hit Back/Forward on his browser ?

How can just a submit a form when the user tab out of a
field ?
( I have tried to put submit form on every field on
the from, but this creates a looping problem, the
from keep submitting data on the open)?

Is there a better way to approach this problem ?

Thank you
