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.
The default behaviour of focus() method is displaying the cursor at start of the char(In FF focusOffset is 0(zero) and anchorOffset is 0(zero)). I need to display the focus at end of char after calling focus() method.
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'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.
Assuming I have the functions, "isNumber" and "isEmpty", how would I write the HTML INPUT type="text" element such that a person cannot exit the element unless they have typed in a valid number (as defined by the function isNumber) or left the field empty (as defined by isEmpty)? Thus, if they have typed in "aaa" and then pressed "Tab" to go the next element, they'd get a warning message, and be returned to the old element?
Ideally, this solution would work for both the latest versions of Firefox and IE.
When I click on a field, I put the object position in a variableEnviro["lastfocus"] = $(event.target);I call the action and a block of HTML arrived on the page, I place this text and then after, i want the focus to return to the field and I do this:
I'm submitting a form when the value of a drop-down menu changes. After that I would like to remove the focus from the field itself. I have tried different things: blur, focus=remove and so on but no one works. How can I remove the focus for a field?
I'm trying to make a form with a postal code input. But there are 6 input fields within a div container. When some one types just one letter they automatically go to the next input field this continuing until they reach the last input area.
