    [CLOSED] Have a HTML Editor in window, want to give focus and put cursor at end of content...

    .focus() doesn't seem to work.

    Is there any solid work around? I tried just about everything I found here in forum...

    I just want the cursor to be at the end of the content, ready for user to type...

    Thanks

    Ya, for some reason calling .focus() does not appear to work. We will have to try and fix.

    Thanks for the report.

    Hi everybody,

    It appears to be working in this scenario. Tested on FireFox.

    Example
    <%@ Page Language="C#" %>
    
    <%@ Register Assembly="Ext.Net" Namespace="Ext.Net" TagPrefix="ext" %>
    
    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <html>
    <head runat="server">
        <title>Ext.NET v2 Example</title>
    </head>
    <body>
        <form runat="server">
            <ext:ResourceManager runat="server" />
    
            <ext:Window ID="Window1" runat="server" Hidden="true" DefaultFocus="HtmlEditor1">
                <Items>
                    <ext:HtmlEditor ID="HtmlEditor1" runat="server" />
                </Items>
            </ext:Window>
            
            <ext:Button runat="server" Text="Show" Handler="App.Window1.show();" />
        </form>
    </body>
    </html>

    Try and just call .focus() on the HtmlEditor.

    App.HtmlEditor1.focus();

    From a JavaScript console of a browser? Yes, it appears to be not working if call from FireBug. Maybe, FireBug takes focus back. I am not sure.

    It appears to work in this example.

    Example
    <%@ Page Language="C#" %>
    
    <%@ Register Assembly="Ext.Net" Namespace="Ext.Net" TagPrefix="ext" %>
    
    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <html>
    <head runat="server">
        <title>Ext.NET v2 Example</title>
    </head>
    <body>
        <form runat="server">
            <ext:ResourceManager runat="server" />
    
            <ext:HtmlEditor ID="HtmlEditor1" runat="server" />
    
            <ext:TextField ID="TextField1" runat="server" />
    
            <ext:Button runat="server" Text="Focus HtmlEditor" Handler="App.HtmlEditor1.focus();" />
    
            <ext:Button runat="server" Text="Focus TextField" Handler="App.TextField1.focus();" />
        </form>
    </body>
    </html>

    Yes, that does appear to be the case.

    Now, place cursor at the end.

    Do you mean that the cursor is not placed at the end in my example?
