I have created a textarea control in html. And whatever i have given in that text area will be updated immediately.

After i typed each word in that text area, immediately the browser should update itself automatically.

can i achieve this using javascript?

thanks if you answer me.

I don't think I understand the question. If you type into a text area on a web page, that text shows up in the text area. Where do you want it to show up? Maybe you can show an example?

If it is about something like updating the data to the server, then you may need to use some ajax techniques.

i explain you clearly sir!

browser window
---------------------------
-------------------------|
div element |
|
|
|
------------------------ |
| textArea |
| |
| |
---------------------------

I will give some html code in the textarea. That code will be executed in the div element (div.innerHTML = txtArea.value). This should be performed after i type a word.

You may clear now i think.

Thanks!

Than you need to use onkeypress with the code you already shown.

thank you sir!

But from your view,
for each key stroke the onkeypress event will be triggered. But what i want is, after typing a word (not a character) that div should be updated.

Then you'll need to detect whenever whatever you consider a "word" is complete.

Also, please be sure to take the time to compose descriptive subjects for your posts; read this for more information.

Using a title of "how can i do this in javascript?" in a forum completely dedicated to questions on JavaScript isn't very helpful.

Please go back and change your post to add a more meaningful subject by clicking the

You still want the event on each key stroke so you can keep track of the characters in memory until a word is complete. Then add the word to the div and empty the temporary buffer.
