In which trigger (except key-next-item) can we use a 'POST' statement?
Because we need to work 'POST' statement after leaving a text item using mouse

As POST is a restricted procedure, you can't use it anywhere you'd like it to (for example, a WHEN-VALIDATE-ITEM looks like a good choice for what you've said but - unfortunately - it doesn't allow the POST built-in to be used within it).

So, if you can't use it when leaving the item, perhaps you could use it before entering another item? That would be the WHEN-NEW-ITEM-INSTANCE trigger which accepts the POST built-in.

On the other hand, perhaps you could explain the reason you think you need to use POST; maybe there's another way to do that (and someone might be able to suggest another/better way).
