Is there a way to set the focus on a form field without using focus()? I use ajax to build the form and if I try to set the focus using focus() an error is generate because of the form hasn't been built by ajax. So, it would be nice if I could set the focus() as I built the form.
I've got this hidden div that pops up using jQuery when the login menu item is clicked. <div class="entry-wrapper" id="reg-login" style="display:none;"> <div class="t"></div> <div id="loginFormHolder" class="c"> <div class="close"> <a href="index.php" class="spotlight-close"> </a> </div> <!-- close --> <div class="login"> <div> <!-- blank --> ..... What I'm trying to do is setting the input focus on the user_session_username text input and the code is not working. The div pops up but the focus is never put into the user_session_username edit field.
I have managed to create a very basic form validation script that I can retrospectively add into current forms with the least effort.
As far as the validation goes I am sure that the script is not pretty, but it does work. However, I have failed to manage to get it to return the focus to the first field that errors.
My abortive attempts are not included in the attached script because I have tried and failed with many different attempts that I have confused myself. I would appreciate any advice that could point me in the right direction to place the focus in the first error field found. Code:
I'm developing am income tax calculator, and everything is going swell. Currently the user can type in their adjusted gross income (AGI), hit submit, and learn the amount of income tax they would pay, their tax rate, and their income after tax.
I've played around with the events to get the submit button to work in FF, IE, Chrome and Safari -- and I've gotten the enter button to work before with some stock code, but here's the catch: when the user presses enter, i want the focus to leave the input box. I don't care where it goes (submit button, I suppose?) but i need it to leave the input field so the onfocus="clearText(this);" event can fire when they return to type in a new income.
I have a form which open in a jQuery Fancybox Window. The fancybox window opens automatically when the page loads. When it loads, I would like it to set focus on the username field in the form in the Fancybox window. I have found that this must be done when fancybox is envoked, thus I have tried the below code which does not work :
I was hoping to get some insight on my problem. Please be patient, as I am new to this.
I have two iframes, "menu" and "register". When a menu item is chosen, the "register" iframe loads up the necessary jsp. However, I can't seem to access any of the links in the "register" iframe - these links are simply displayed as text.
Is there any way to redirect focus to my "register" iframe so that I can access its links?
I've tried stuff like:
top.frames.register.document.all.elementID.focus(); top.frames.register.document.focus(); top.frames.info.document.menuItem0.focus(); // where <td id="menuItem0"> ... etc.
When i press tab in my document which has editor it brings focus on editor iframe. Now if i again press tab then the focus goes to send button which is below the editor. But also cursor stays in editor.In such condition if i start typing, then as soon as press space my form is submitted as focus was on send button.
I have a script that runs when the page is loaded to set focus to a field. If I have an alert immediately before I call focus() on the field everything is good. If the alert isn't there, the cursor never shows up in the field...however, it scrolls to the textbox and if I hit tab I move to the field immediately following it which would indicate I really do have focus on the field, yet the cursor isn't there so I can't start typing in the field. I thought it might be an issue with the page not being fully loaded but if that is the case why does it scroll down to the field and move to the next field after hitting tab. This is a hard one to explain and what complicates it more is that it's in an AJAX responseText environment so it's hard to nail down. Any ideas on this?
I have an intranet page which has an iframe which links to a number of different possible .NET pages.
In one of the embedded .NET pages (and soon to be others) we want to be
able to capture keystrokes in order to link to other apps. we do this by setting document.onkeydown to a function which handles the various possibilities.
The problem I have is that when the intranet page loads with my .NET page in its iframe, focus is not given to the .NET page, and so in order for the page to capture keystrokes you have to click on the contents of the iframe, which is both clunky and (it seems to me) unnecessary.
How do I automatically give focus to the contents of the iframe when it
loads up? I've tried putting the following script at the bottom of the intranet page itself, but this doesn't seem to work:
I have this page below which I run locally that is created dynamically: [URL]
As I said this does the job to some extent however it does not leave the focus in a perfect position so that the captcha is readable and the text box visible to type in, as illustrated in the red box in the above image.
I'm using JS to dynamically change the CSS attrib's of User Input Fields in a form. It works fine for text input fields but does not seem to work at all for TEXTAREAS. (IE6) Is there a tweak that might overcome this limitation? Code:
I have a set of fields(text) that are populated with data. When you tab through the fields some show focus by highlighting the entire word while others do not. What is the reason for this and can I force the highlighting?
How do I set focus on the next textfield in form when there are two characters typed in the textfield before. Like entering serialcodes for installation, you can just keep typing and the characters will appear in the next textfield when the textfield before is full.
