Cursors Ready

Using JavaScript, you can set up a form such that when the Web page is loaded the cursor is in the text box. This functionality avoids making the user click into the box–instead the user can just type. Through JavaScript and the Document Object Model, you can easily access the properties and methods of the HTML form elements on a page. One method shared by all of the HTML form elements is focus(). By calling this method you can move the cursor to any element you’d like. The associated code shows how to make this happen.
