Detecting change in the form fields

Hi,

I need to perform an action when any field in the form is changed.
The form has about 40 fields.
Currently, I have a onchange function on every field that set a global variable to true:

function onFieldChange() {
window.fieldWasChanged = true;
}

Is there a better way to do this? Is there a onchange action for the entire form?

Thanks,
Ancat
