What is focus? Focus is when something is active or highlighted. Example: When the
cursor is in a form blinking. That form has the focus. The following are examples of how
to use the focus command.
See how the cursor is already in the form. Normally the cursor won't be in it. Put the following lines into your body tag.
An example is:
<BODY BGCOLOR="#FFFFFF" TEXT="#000000"
LINK="#FF0000" VLINK="#000080" ALINK="#000080"
And put this somewhere in your page.
Just copy the following lines.
Now all you need to do is goto Edit and hit copy and BAM! You just copied that script!! To use this copy this code.
You can use this for regular text boxes as well!
See how the text in the button has a box around it. If you hit the space bar, you can press in the button. A more practical use for this is using the onLoad function. Here is the script.
Quick Note: To declare a certain form or button part of you code would look like this:
< body onLoad="document.form1.a.focus()">
In the onLoad command, "document" refers to the current document. "form1" refers to the the name of a from. "a" refers to the name of the input type within the form. "focus()" is the focus command ( "select()" selects all the text). This should help you if you want to create your own focus commands.
