    set active content

    konlin77 Level 1

      Hello,

      I have a simple login, and when creation is complete on my app, i want the USERID textbox to already be highlighted so the user can simply start typing, rather then having to click the textbox first. Does anyone know how to do this ?

          Hi,
          Check for textbox.setFocus();

            Thanks JFB,

            Using setFocus() my textbox is now highlighted on open, but user still has to click in box to get curser.
            Any more ideas?

              mmm.. I just test and it highlighted, open and the cursor is blinking inside
              ready for type.
              Maybe you are hiding the cursor or something...
