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..)
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 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'm having a bit of an issue in my ASP.Net application moving focus from a textbox in one user control to a text box in the next user control on the page after postback. I've searched high and low over the last several days to find a solution but, for whatever reason, have been unable to do so.
I have a page that has user controls loaded dynamically to allow a user to enter data.The number and type of user controls loaded to the page is determined at run time based on a database query.It is possible than many controls of the same type can be loaded. Each user control has its own update panel. Within the update panel of each control is a regular asp panel. Inside of the regular panel there are at least 2 server controls (any other controls that may exist in the user control are not affected by this issue) - a text box and a button.The defaultbutton property of the regular panel is set to the ID of the button within the user control. The desired behavior is to allow the user to enter data into the textbox on one user control hit enter to save the data on that user control the application will set focus to the textbox of the next user control on the page after the data from the "current" user control has been saved. Other considerations;
The application uses master pages. We make extensive use of ajax and the ajaxtoolkit in the application. I am using Visual Studio 2010 and .Net 4 The issue - when first entering the page, one can enter data into the first textbox and press the enter key. Data from "current" user control is correctly saved and focus is correctly moved to the next user control on the page.
Data can be entered into the textbox of "new" user control and when the enter key is pressed, the data is correctly save. The focus appears to move correctly to the next user control on the page.Data cannot be entered into the textbox of the control. Pressing the enter key will not save the data (because none was entered) but the focus will move to the textbox of the next user control on the page.
Data can be entered into the textbox of the user control. When the enter key is pressed, the data is correctly saved and the focus appears to move correctly to the textbox of the next control on the pageBasically, steps 3 and 4 are repeated until the end of the user controls on the page, alternating between being able to enter data and not. Other items of note When one is able to enter data into the textbox of a user control, one can correctly tab through the textboxes of each user control until the end of the page When one is not able to enter data into the textbox of a user control, pressing the tab key will take the focus to the address bar of the browser.
I created a much simplified example of the scenario described above and was able to consistently reproduce the "bad" focus behavior. All of the ajax toolkit controls and code where stripped out of the sample to rule the toolkit out as a cause. The behavior still occurs without the toolkit.
I am including the code for default.aspx and WebUserControl1.ascx.
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:
A Login.aspx has been created to enforce security on several forms of a web site.How can it be best called by each form at page load and return to that form after succesful login? How could that requirement be declared in web.config?
