Have you read the helps on these statements? ... ement.html ... ement.html

Almost no application will ever use killfocus. Onfocus is useful though for CAPI applications. It is triggered when moving both forwards and backwards into a field, unlike preproc which is only triggered when moving forwards.

Generally you will use onfocus when constructing a dynamic value set on a roster. Because you may move backwards into a previous row, you will want the value set to be recreated every time that you get to the the field.
