onrowexit event | rowexit event

Browser support:
Occurs on a data source object before the current row in it changes.
If the current row is not an existing row (not initialized, pointing to the position before the first record (BOF is true) or after the last record (EOF is true)) and the current row changes, the onrowexit event is not fired.

Use the onrowenter event to receive a notification when the current row has changed.
