Form focus on FP search


L

Larry

How do I place form focus on the searchbox of a FP2K standard search
bot? I added a name field but am not sure how to set the focus to it. I
cannot select a 'document' as there is no form name.

<!--webbot bot="Search" S-Index="All" S-Fields="Weight"
I-Size="50" S-Submit="Start Search"
S-Clear="Reset" S-TimestampFormat="%m/%d/%Y" TAG="BODY"
b-useindexserver="0" S-Text="Search for:" name="sitesearch" -->

Any help would be appreciated.

The form field name use by the search webbot input field is name="search"
There is no form name so you would use the form index
(0 for the 1st form on your page)

<body onload="document.form(0).search.focus()" >

Using: <body onload="document.form[0].search.focus();" > I get different
error "document.form has no properties". I tried "forms" as well with
same result. Since my FP search box is the 2nd form on the page (first
is the time of day top right) I also tried form[1] and that gave the
same error. All this in Firefox. In IE get no error but focus doesn't
work either.

When I try this I get a javascript error "Error: document.form is not a
function" in Firefox. I added the onload command as below and
name="search" in the search form.
