TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
Fiona Hurley:<<I have a form with a button that is disabled until
the user enters details into one of the fields. However, the button isn't
enabled when they are typing, but only when they enter text and then "focus
out" of the field. They can take the focus of the field by either clicking
elsewhere on the form, pressing the return key, or tabbing to another field.
This is the sentence: "The Update button is not enabled when you type into
the field, it is only enabled when you focus out of the field.">>
We use "shift the focus" in these circumstances. For example, the sentence you cited would be: "The Update button is disabled until you shift the focus out of this field."
