JavaScript - Set Focus To End Of Text In Textbox After Postback?

Oct 27, 2010

I've got a simple ASP.Net form with txtBox and btn.

User click btn, which adds text to an ASP:TextBox in a postback (its adding a known "starter text".

After the postback I'd like the focus to be set to the end of the text in the textbox.

If I call Page.SetFocus(...) or txtBox.Focus() then the txtBox gets focus, but at the beginning of the text - which means if the user starts typing, they'll be in the wrong place.



would like it to be


I've tried the following in the textbox:

onfocus="alert('focus');this.value = this.value;"

but the "alert" only appears the first two times? Then nothing?

Javascript - How To Set Focus In TextBox After Postback

Oct 27, 2010

I have a simple page where I want to filter a ListBox based upon a value(s) in a textbox - both are in an UpdatePanel.This works correctly, however, after the postback the textbox had lost I set focus back in the page_load.Then I noticed that the cursor was now at the beginning of the text when I want it at the end so the user can carry on typing, so I added an onfocus(...) attribute to the textbox to set the value back to itself (see code below).This works the first two times, but then it stops setting focus to the textbox?

Set Focus On Textbox After Postback?

Apr 22, 2010

I have a search page with 3 TextBoxes that users can filter a search with.

I have put the focus on the TextBox that contains text. If more than one contains text just focus on last TextBox.


After the code runs and a user searches, the focus comes to the beginning of the TextBox, not the end where it would be presumed. How to put insert marked at the end of that TextBox?

Forms Data Controls :: How To Set Focus In Gridview Textbox And Highlight The Text If It Is Zero

Jan 6, 2010

I have a text box in a gridview that is causing some problems with user input. The first time the user opens the page the gridview is populated with zero's in all rows textboxes. I set the focus to the first textbox in the Page_Load event but the cursor is placed to the left of the zero and when some users enter data they don't realize the zero doesn't go away so the first row ends up wrong. Once the tab or enter key is hit and the next row is selected, the zero is "selected", for lack of a better term like when the insert key is predded, and once the user starts typing only the new value remains. Is there a way to make the zero in the first row "selected" ?

Execute A JavaScript Function When Textbox Is Populated And Focus Is Still Set In JQuery?

Javascript - Focus On Submit Button Using JQuery When Pressing Enter In Textbox?

Nov 10, 2010

I have a page with multiple textboxes and each has a button associated with it. This works as a search 'hub', I suppose, where the user can search by ID, name etc. When entering a search term for e.g. name however, pressing enter 'clicks' the very first button on the page (ID search), causing an error if the associated textbox is empty (which it would be if someone meant to search by name). I have attempted to rectify this using JQuery, and have written the following:

$('input:text').click(function (e) {

I'm simply using the click event so that I can monitor where focus is redirected, but eventually I would use .keypress. However, nothing happens upon clicking a textbox and I can't see for the life of me what is wrong with the JQuery. To elaborate on the problem, the .NET code used looks similar to the following throughout the page.

<td style="width:100">Company ID</td>
<td style="margin-left:3px;">
<asp:TextBox ID="...TextBox" runat="server" Width="230px"></asp:TextBox>
<asp:Button CssClass="Button" ID="...NameSearch" Text="Search" runat="server" /></td></tr>

This is generating this (view source):

<td><input name="...TextBox" id="...TextBox" style="width: 230px;" type="text"/></td>
<td><input name="...NameSearch" class="Button" id="...NameSearch" onclick="javascript:__doPostBack('...NameSearch','')" type="button" value="Search"/></td>

C# - Way To Highlight Text In A Textbox Using Javascript

By 'highlight', I mean change the CSS properties of the text so that it can stand out. I think this can be done with some clientside JavaScript.I know that you can assign a Javascript function to the onclick event of an HTML input button, but since I'm not very proficient at JS the function itself I have no idea how to write

C# - Change Textbox Text In JavaScript?

I'm allowing a user to use either one of two textboxes to search a database - one is an ID field, and one is a freetext field. I'm using ASP.NET with C# btw.Anyway, all I need to do is have it so when a user clicks on one of the text boxes, the other text box text is simply deleted, so the other text box is blank. How would I do this? I'm guessing JavaScript is the solution.
