Default @ 1st input field

At the login.asp page, how can I have the cursor in the User Name field instead of having to tab to or clicking in the text box?
Please advise.
Thanks, Tracey

Hi Tracey,

You need to use a bit of JavaScript to make this work:


ASP.NET (the successor to the older and out-dated classic ASP you're working with right now) makes this a little easier by allowing you to tell the page which control needs the focus on load. ASP.NET then generates the necessary client side script for you.

It's these little changes (and some bigger ones as well) that eventually make you want to switch to ASP.NET.....
