  • When comma-separated values, whitespaces, or double-byte characters are sanitized, as long as the final value does not change, the event will not be triggered. For example, if the user enters a value of 1000 into a field, and then proceeds to manually change the value to 1,000, 1000, or 1000, the value will be sanitized back to 1000 (the same number), and the field change event will not be triggered.


  • This event is only available on the Desktop, and not on the mobile.
