Equivalent to JavaScript onChange

Is there an equivalent to the onChange function that is available in Javascript.

I'm working on making changes to an existing system and I would like to avoid making procedural changes for the existing users. I'm trying to perform a script if the value of a certain field gets changed. The basic example is a text field which contains the status of a task. When the value is changed by a user to 'Done' I want a script to kick off that will perform a number of steps (i.e. record the elapsed time, write some stats to another file, etc.)

I've tried searching both the layout and scriptMaker forums for words like 'on change' but so far no results.

Thanks,

Triggering a script based on field changes can only be done using a plugin. Troi Activator and Events from Waves in Motion are two options. There are also several free alternatives: zippScript, EventScript, and if you have FileMaker Advanced, the free example plugin that's buried somewhere on the install CD.

Yes, both Troi and Waves have versions for older FileMaker versions.
