using javascript:

<INPUT type=text onblur="if (this.value != 'password') { this.focus(); }">

you can do this using ASP, as it runs on the server, so it doesnt actually work with objects on the page...

hope this helps!

Yes JonFish85, your method is good. But cursor will be at the begining of the text that already typed. So continues data entry is difficult as suling16 wants.

I don't know any way to move cursor to the end of the text. But if you wan't to overwrite the existing text that can be done by using select methid.

eg:
<INPUT type=text onblur="this.select();this.focus();">

Anyone have a better idea?
