Hello Experts,

I have an ASP.NET using VB page which i Will be viewing from a Windows Mobile internet explorer.

I want to set the focus to a control through the event of another.

This works fine from the browser of a PC but doesn't work from a Mobile browser.

Any ideas how I can make this work ???

Thanks in advance,

Pythonv.

Mobile web applications require that you use Javascript to give a control focus using document.getElementById("").focus(). Do you have a straightforward way to do this in your enfironment?

hello, Thanks for the response.

I have a way of editing the javascript as im using Visual Studio 05.

I found another solution however as shown here:

I changed the body tag to server side control. this enabled me to change the focus through the events, just what I needed.

Thanks.
