If in the textarea (textarea3), the value is not "abc", and the user
uses "Tab" to go to the next textarea (textarea4), it will alert an
error message...and the focus will return to the textarea (textarea3)
It works in Internet Explorer, however in firefox it does not work?
Anyway have any ideas why & how? Code:
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.
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.
document.[Form Name].[Field Name].focus();
If you happened to have the page scrolled above where the error field is then the page will scroll so that the error field is at the very top of the window. If you happened to have the page scrolled below where the error field is then the page will scroll so that the error field is at the very bottom of the window. Neither of these is very desirable. Any way to get the error field to the middle of the window?
If I use the following construct in the frame "main" for a link to an extern site:
<A HREF="http://www.any.xy" TARGET="extern">
the Browser is creating the window "extern", loading the page www.any.xy an setting the focus to "extern". But when I go return to "main" without closing "extern", a click to an other link (e.g. www.2nd_any.xy) on "main" does not setting the focus to "extern".
For setting the focus to "extern" in the second case, I have used the following construct:
<A HREF="http://www.any.xy" TARGET="extern" onClick="setTimeout('extern=window.open('','extern');fr emd.focus();',500);"> an example</A>
This construct has worked very well for a few years, but since about one year, the sesult was the same as using <A HREF="http://www.any.xy" TARGET="extern">
In this year, I have changed: win 95 --> win 2000 modem 56k --> DSL Netscape 4.5 --> Netscape 7.1
Can anybody tell me a possibility setting the focus to "extern" in the second case? Is the changing of my configuration the reason, that the construct has failed?
Neglecting the annoyance factor for a moment, is it possible to keep one browser window at the screen forefront (in front of all other browser windows) but still be able to interact with a window directly beneath it? How would this be pulled off in JS?
I encountered some strange behaviour when using focus()
I'm trying to do default focus on checkbox,its work fine but the problem is that the user cannot know where is the focus (there isn't visual sign and on the other hand if you press on the tab button there is a visual sign).
I have a page that has 3 different iframes in it. The bottom iFrame continually gets updated as the user adds different images to it through the interface, and once the user clicks one of the images, I change the style of the image to put a border around it. The problem is, once I set off this function to put a border around the clicked image, the iFrame resets itself. So, if I've scrolled over to the right a bit and clicked on a pic, the frame resets itself all the way to the left, so the user would have to scroll back over to see the pic they just clicked.
I've tried doing an onFocus in the function that adds the style, and it's not working.
Ive got a really simple problem but I can't figure it out. I've got a form named bob with one text box name bobtext with a default value of "http://". When I add onload="document.bob.bobtext.focus()" it focuses on the text box, but at the beginning. Is it possible to focus on the text box, but at the end of "http://"? This seems like something easy so I'm probably making some stupid mistake.
this is for a browser window that contains a chat app that is an applet... when browser window is not in focus I would like users to somehow get notified when a message arrives, more or less like regular IM apps do.. I did with window.focus(), but I don't really want window to come into focus, I just want it to 'blink' and then stay highlighted.. I tried window.setActive() method (not sure what that method does but wanted to try it) but I get obj-non-supported error in IE6 with that method ..
I thought this would be really simple, but i'm stumped. I'd like to validate some data without submitting the form, but i can't seem to get the focus to go back to the field with the bad data. I've stripped out most of the code just to illustrate the problem. In both IE and Mozilla, the focus still goes to the next element. This is .php generated.
