    Cursor focus on first field

    Asked by sarajmiller16 on January 13, 2014 at 05:33 PM

    Is there a way to place the cursor focus on the first field of the form? I am placing my form on my webpage and would love that functionality to be there.

    That can be done but requires that the form's full source be embedded into the page along with a script. This demo shows the Last Name having the focus when the page loads. The script and its requisite enclosing script tags can be seen just before the page's closing body tag.

    Would this solution work for you?

    Dear Abajan,

     

    Can you help me with my form? I want my field to have an auto cursor focus over the member number field like you do in your demo for last name.

    Thanks
