set focus (Javascript)

I'm trying to simply set the focus of "txtUserName" upon opening this
login form. I put in some Javascript but it is not working. Any
ideas? Thanks!

1. Where do you actually call the DoFocus()?
2. asp:TextBox seems to be not closed properly.

I used this:

Private Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As
System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
txtUserName.focus()
End Sub

But get this: 'focus' is not a member of
'System.Web.UI.webcontrols.TextBox'



You don't need JavaScript...Just put

txtUserName.focus();

in your page_load event.

Yes I'm using code-behind and the Intellisense did not list ".focus()"

That surprised me.  When you typed txtUserName., did you get intellisense
for .focus())?  I tested it before I repled to you.  I am using C#, but that
shouldn't make a difference.  Are you using a code-behind page?

Sorry, should have noted that I'm using VB.net. But no Intellisense
is showing as a .Focus()
This is a weird one. Focus had always been so simple in VB 6.0

If you're using C#, .focus() certainly won't work nor will it show in
IntelliSense because C# is case-sensitive...

txtUserName.Focus() should work, though...

re:

It is, still, simple.

If you have a textbox named txtUserName in a VB aspx page,
when you go to the code-behind page and create a Sub Page_Load:

Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load

End Sub

and then type txtUsername inside it, *and place a dot (.) after that*,
you should get a dropdown which includes Focus as one of the options.

The process is the same when you use inline code:

You create :

Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
End Sub

....and when you write, or select, txtUsername.

you'll get a dropdown which includes Focus as one of the options.

I did exactly that, and still no Focus as a choice or accepted
keyword:

Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As
System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
txtUserName.
End Sub

I double-checked the spelling, etc.

re:

That's odd.

I just checked with both VS 2005 and VS 2008
....and I get Intellisense for Focus with both.


1. Which version of VS are you using ?

2. Do you actually have a textbox named txtUserName ?

I first tested with the standard "TextBox1" ID suggested by the IDE,
and then created a texbox with the ID "txtUserName",
and got the Intellisense dropdown with the Focus option for both.
