Definition and Usage

The onchange attribute fires the moment when the value of the element is changed.

Tip: This event is similar to the oninput event. The difference is that the oninput event occurs immediately after the value of an element has changed, while onchange occurs when the element loses focus. The other difference is that the onchange event also works on <keygen> and <select> elements.
