With serveal elements on an HTML form (browser IE 6.0).  Use of focus() works well to position cursor all elements except input elements type 'radio' or 'check box'.   Since these elements can receive focus like the other elements; I would like to position the mouse cursor on the form so it is 'over' the the check box element.   This movement should include a form that is big enough so the element may actually be scroolled past the viewable area that the form be scrolled so the item is viewable and the cursor is over the element.

How do I move the mouse cursor to postions on a form.

    To be honest, I very much doubt you'd be able to do anything like this for security reasons. I'd suggest a better way would be to place each form element inside its own div and highlight the area using individual background colours, it's just an example.

    Sorry I can't help further.

    Correct, you cannot move the mouse pointer in the browser. The user has sole control over the mouse.
