launch script on field validation?

After many, many years away from FileMaker...

I'd like to launch a script that is triggered by a field's validation (i.e. the user TABs out of the field)...but the clostest option I see...might be using a custom funtion to somehow run a script(?)

In other words, when the user TABs-out of this field, I want a script to launch, and I'd like to know the best method in which to implement this.

TIA

Many thanks, Lee and Vaughn. Looks like there's definitely some good pug-ins available for this. I agree with a lot of comments that I've read on similar threads -- basic script-firing events like this should be included in the standard product. That, and adding an option to enable cascading updates between related fields in separate tables.

But, I have very few "complaints"...FMP has evolved into the best all-around database software that I have ever used.
