hi all,
i have a login help web page, it has a master page.
and in the content holder:
1.  there are two tables,
2. one table tblPwd is for "forgot your password",
3. and table tblLoginID is for "forgot your login id"
4. each table contains two text boxes: Login ID and Password
5. so there are two buttons, buttonPwd is for submitting "forgot your password", buttonLoginID is for submitting "forgot your login id"
6. when i click the txtPwd in tblLoginID, the buttonPwd in tblPwd is highlighted automatically. i think it means buttonPwd in tblPwd is set to default submit button by Asp.net.
7. Question is: how to make buttonLoginID in tblLoginID highlighted when i go to(eg. focus on, enter/type words) the textboxes in tblLoginID? and make buttonPwd in tblPwd highlighted when i go to(eg. focus on, enter/type words) the textboxes in tblPwd?

thanks a lot

Through Javascript you can do this. Add a javascript function on the click or getfocus event of textbox. That javascript function will set the foucs on the required button.

   <script language="javascript">
        function SetFocus()
        {
           btnSubmit.focus();
        }
    </script>

Call this method where ever you want to set the focus after the event.

You can't use ".focus()" because when you click on any textboxes, the focus changes and you can't enter any text.
You can use one of the functions (I mean "WebForm_FireDefaultButton") in "WebForms.js" which is an embedded resource inside System.Web.dll.
So add the following codes to Page_Load.
Change the following names and correct them:  "TextBox1InTable1", "TextBox2InTable1", "TextBox1InTable2", "TextBox2InTable2", "ButtonNameInTable1" and "ButtonNameInTable2".

Now enjoy it... ;)
        ClientScript.RegisterClientScriptResource(typeof(Page), "WebForms.js");
        TextBox1InTable1.Attributes.Add("onkeypress", "javascript:return WebForm_FireDefaultButton(event, 'ButtonNameInTable1')");
        TextBox2InTable1.Attributes.Add("onkeypress", "javascript:return WebForm_FireDefaultButton(event, 'ButtonNameInTable1')");
        TextBox1InTable2.Attributes.Add("onkeypress", "javascript:return WebForm_FireDefaultButton(event, 'ButtonNameInTable2')");
        TextBox2InTable2.Attributes.Add("onkeypress", "javascript:return WebForm_FireDefaultButton(event, 'ButtonNameInTable2')");

I mentioned if you want to highlight the new button (change focus) you will not able to type immediately, so if it is important for you to change the face of active submit button, then change style and work on it.

i used the following code to do the processing. but button1 is still be highlighted when i click textboxes in table 2.


txtBox_Pwd1.Attributes.Add("onkeydown", "if(event.which || event.keyCode){if ((event.which == 13) || (event.keyCode == 13)) {document.getElementById('" + BUTTON1.UniqueID + "').click();return false;}} else {return true}; ");
            txtBox_Email1.Attributes.Add("onkeydown", "if(event.which || event.keyCode){if ((event.which == 13) || (event.keyCode == 13)) {document.getElementById('" + BUTTON1.UniqueID + "').click();return false;}} else {return true}; ");
            txtBox_Email2.Attributes.Add("onkeydown", "if(event.which || event.keyCode){if ((event.which == 13) || (event.keyCode == 13)) {document.getElementById('" + BUTTON2.UniqueID + "').click();return false;}} else {return true}; ");
            txtBox_Pwd2.Attributes.Add("onkeydown", "if(event.which || event.keyCode){if ((event.which == 13) || (event.keyCode == 13)) {document.getElementById('" + BUTTON2.UniqueID + "').click();return false;}} else {return true}; ");
