Cursor position within a window

Question:
I have a DB log-on panel defined for my application, and the user ID is loaded from an INI file. I would like to have the cursor on the password SLE if the user ID SLE is loaded from the INI file, and on the user ID if it’s not. How can I do this?

Answer:
You need to check the userid field to see if it containsany data. If it does, you can use the SetFocus() command to move thecursor (or caret) to the password field.
