Hi there,

I am trying to set focus on a textbox when a dropdown selection is made. Upon choosing the "yes" field (value 1), the txtPlacement should have focus. This works fine until I add the Editor control. It seems the editor control always takes focus, no matter what.

protected void ddlPlacement_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
        if (ddlPlacement.SelectedValue == "1")
            txtPlacement.Enabled = true;
            txtPlacement.Enabled = false;

    private void SetFocus(string txtbox)
        System.Text.StringBuilder sb = new System.Text.StringBuilder("");

        sb.Append("<script language=\"JavaScript\">");
        sb.Append(" document.forms[0].item(\"" + txtbox + "\").focus()");

        if (!IsStartupScriptRegistered("setFocus"))
            RegisterStartupScript("setFocus", sb.ToString());

Try setting SetFocus property, which gets or sets a value that indicates whether the editor text box will be focused on page load, of your UltimateEditor control to False. Its default value is True.

Thanks! Worked just fine... One of those things I should've tried, sorry about that Smile

Thanks again!
