without using body onload
| 9:35 pm on Dec 25, 2006 (gmt 0)|
I'm trying to set focus on a form field but I'm using a cms where I can't edit the body tag or edit the head section.
Well, I can, but it's only on one page I want to use the code (the login page) and so I don't need the script on every page.
So here's the thing.
I've tried posting:
<!-- self.focus();document.login.username.focus() //--> </SCRIPT>
before and after the form (login) and it doesn't work.
Any tips on how to set the focus without changing the body tag or adding the JS to the head?

<form> ... </form>
Looks for an element with an id of "loginform"
Looks for <input> tags
Looks for the specified item. The first input tag is 0, the second is 1, etc
And then sets the focus..

But here's a problem - It seems to work initially when that form is loaded - But as the rest of the page loads, it looses focus.
Suggestions? Maybe I'll try placing the JS somewhere else..
