MVC :: Setting The Focus To A TextBox On Page Load
Jan 11, 2011
In my markup, in addition to a number of other controls I have the following:
<%:Html.TextBoxFor( m => m.UserName)%>
However, I don't like the fact that the model field name 'UserName' has to be expressed as a string constant again here - it smells of a maintenance problem. I'd really like to be able to reference the model field directly if possible. Somethiing like this: $('#' + '<%:Html.ModelFieldNameFor(m => m.UserName)%>').focus();
I have been browing forums & googling for a couple of hours this morning, trying to find an answer to what (to me) should be a very simple issue. (I am a Delphi programmer moving somewhat reluctantly to Visual Studio C# , for web apps) I have created the simplest ASP.NET website in Visual Studio, containing a Textbox and a Button. When the website loads, I want Textbox1 to have focus. Simply doing
and this too does not work. However, if I press the Enter key when the webpage is displayed, then focus does move to TextBox1 (and pressing Enter again will fire any code attached to Button1). Surely it cannot be this hard to perform something so simple?
I have a panel which contains a textbox and a button. The panel will be shown as a modal popup using the 'modal popup extender' . I want to set the focus to the textbox in the panel when my modal pop up loads .
In set the Send button as default button in my page. In the button click event I try to set the focus to the TextBox. When clicking the button the event work fine but While clicking the enter button I cant input text to TextBox.
Each textbox has a TextChange() event wired up for data validation.
These events fire just fine, the data validation works just fine.
My issue is this: User enters text into TextBox1 one then tabs into TextBox2. The cursor appears for a split second inside of TextBox2 then disappears as focus is being set somewhere else on the page. I'm not sure how that change of focus is happening.
In this scenario, after tabbing out of TextBox1, how can I maintain focus on TextBox2 (and then subsequently TextBox3, TextBox4,etc..)
I have wierd situation on my side. I have a page that uses a user control driven by ajax. When I enter a code in txtbox. Corresponding questions for that code are brought into the middle section of page basically in user control. I have requirement of setting the focus on the controls so that I can tabout the field with feel of questions being a part of same page.
I have to manually set the focus for the first question and after going thru all the questions I get control lost. Basically it dont come back to the actual page. I have tried to manually put the focus on the button but I couldnt.
I have a gridview with edit button. I want to set focus on a textbox in a row when clicking "Edit" button. (it is a label before clicking edit, it become a textbox after clicking edit). However, i can't set it focus in Rowdatabound. By the way, I make a simple .aspx page and just put a textbox on the tabcontainer tab panel. I found that i totally cannot set focus on this text box.
Here is aspx page with a text box, the .aspx page code is below:
I have a page with an iframe on it in which I load another page.On this iframe page I have some textboxes above eachother.When the first textbox is filled with a code the textchanged event is called nd the code is checked with the database.After the code has been changed to the right one (if needed) I want the focus to go to the next textbox.
So at the end of the event I do: Page.SetFocus(txtbox2)ut after the postback refresh, the focus is gone. I have also put the control to be focused in a session variable and then in the page_load event I set the focus to the control in the session variable, but still no focus on the textbox.How can I put it on the 2nd textbox?all is done in the Iframe page codebehind.
I need this focus because the two textboxes are filled via bar code reader and after the scan an "enter press" is done automatically and to be able to allow two scans after each other this focus change is needed.
On the home page of my site I have an UpdatePanel with a Timer which ticks every couple of seconds. Un-related to that I have a user login forum (username / password) If you are typing your username into the textbox while the timer ticks, it takes focus off the textbox.
I have a text box on page load, loads a text value. I would like on the first instance of the page load for another textbox to equal to this value. As I have a gridview on the same page to update the textbox value does not get updated.
Essentially, if provide me with a VB script to obtain the value of the textbox on page load to pass to another textbox default value only on the same page.
Can anyone give me some VB to set focus to a control using the "FindControl" method. MyTextbox.focus() is not good enough because, for instance, I have a textbox called "Username" in the "CreateNewUserWizard" control which is within a Contentplaceholder on a child page so typing in "Username.focus()" does not work on the Page_Load event because Username simply does not have a Focus property.
I have a page that when auto or partial post back happens, focus is set to the address bar rather than the next control. The interesting thing is that when I put an alert in my RadScriptBlock, after the OK is clicked, focus goes to the correct control -or- if I put in an invalid location, focus is returned to the ExpLocation control & when a correct location is input the second time, the tab order/focus command works correctly (see code below).
