I'm trying to execute a bit of code based on the "On Dirty" value of an unbound control and it doesn't seem to be working. Is there a limitation for this such that it has to be bound? The "On Enter" event occurs and the code will execute, but that's not really what I want.

Try your code in the controls After Update event...

I think you will find that on dirty is for bound controls only. It is looking for the little pencil that shows in the table.
I do not think it will work for unbound controls.
As my drinking buddy Jack says, the after update is probably best for this.

You should be able to emulate the function of OnDirty for an unbound control using the OnChange event (which will fire the instant a change is made, rather than at the update). It will fire at EVERY change, of course, so you will need to be sure your code handles that.

Thanks guys. That's what I figured so I used the "On Change" instead while I was waiting on your collective wisdom.
