How Do I Set The Focus To The First Form Field


  • 15 Feb, 2012

    You cannot do this with HTML. However, you can include a script after the form that sets the focus to the appropriate field, like this:<form id="myform" name="myform" action=...><input type="text" id="myinput" name="myinput" ...></form><script type="text/javascript">document.myform.myinput.focus();</script>A similar approach uses <body onload=...> to set the focus, but some browsers seem to process the ONLOAD event before the entire document (i.e., the part with the form) has been loaded.
