Good Afternoon

I have a simple web form, which I am populating with a scanner. The code below is from this form.

The problem I have is when this form is viewed and used on my iphone, the input field does not progress to the next input box, however when the form is populated on my PC via the scanner the focus moves onto the next input box?

Thank you

I take it this change is on line 42? If it is I have just adjusted the code and it makes no difference, the input focus is not the next input field.
