  • I need help figuring out a better way to make the Username Field Active on Page Load

    I had asked in vBTemplates (http://www.vbulletintemplates.com/m...read.php?t=5971), how I could make the Username field Active upon page load - so that as soon as the page loaded, a user could just begin typing in order to log in.

    One of the users helped me by proposing a solution.


    However - there is a shortcoming I want to overcome. With the method that had been suggested to me, the Username field is only made active when the page is loaded from the Address Line of the Browser, Bookmark, or by clicking the main Title Image on the top of the page.

    However, if the username field is NOT active, and you simply reload the page by hitting Refresh - or if you mistype the password and hit the Back button - the Username field does not become Active again.

    I need to get past this limitation. I don't know if the solution is best achieved via PHP, HTML or Java in order to make this work during a Refresh or Back action.


    But I do know that it can be done. For example, on Merriam Webster's site ( http://www.m-w.com/ ), the Dictionary Field becomes active as soon as the page loads. No matter where the focus is, and no matter how you refresh/reload the page - that field becomes active. That's what I want to achieve.

    Can anyone help me figure out what I need to do in order to get that behavior on my board?


    Thanks!
