Title: How do I set the focus to the first form field?
Post by: chinmay.sahoo on 01-31-2017, 06:07:27
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.
