SetFocus

Discussion in 'ASP .Net' started by Jurjen de Groot, Jun 29, 2003.

  1. I would like to set the focus automatically to one of the textbox controls
    on my page, but so far on every page I load I have to set the cursor to the
    textbox by Tab-ing or clicking my mouse in it. I would think that there's a
    much simpler way to solve this ...


    regards,

    Try putting this code at the end of the page,I think it
    goes before the body tag and after the form tag....

    <script language=javascript>
    document.GetElementById('YourTextboxName').focus()
    </script>
