How to set focus on next textbox on Enter Key using jQuery

Posted By: Virendra Dugar     Posted Date: May 23, 2011    Points: 2   Category :JQuery
Normally, tab key is used to move to next text box and by default, when Enter key is pressed, the form gets submitted or it calls the default button click event. But it would be a nice feature for end-user to give him ability to move to next textbox using Enter key.

jquery datepicker not popping up in Gridview Edit Template textbox


I have a gridview that I can't for the life of me get the datepicker calender to pop up for.  I've been using the datepicker for months very successfully for a variety of textboxes on the page and inside of formviews but this is the first time I've tried using with gridview.  I didn't expect any issues however can't seem to find anything to work.  I have searched the forums for 2 days and attempted any suggestions found within the solutions to no avail.  I've tried using the CSS to link the datepicker but everything stopped working when I changed the code and my page which uses a css style already got all distorted looking.  Please help!

Here is my gridview (only included a part b/c it is large and am only having problem with the datepicker for the date completed text box)

<asp:GridView ID="GridViewCompleted" runat="server" AllowPaging="True" AllowSorting="True"
        AutoGenerateColumns="False" BackColor="#CCCCCC" BorderColor="#999999" BorderStyle="Solid"
        BorderWidth="3px" CellPadding="4" DataKeyNames="job_id" DataSourceID="SourceJobProjectCompleted"
        ForeColor="Black" CellSpacing="2">

Enter the date on the WPF DatePicker input textbox instead

When i type in the date on the date picker and check it on an lostfocus event and i try to read the text or selecteddate its blank?  Am i missing something.  I assumed typing in 5/11/2010 on the input box would either show up on the controls Text or the SelectedDate, but i may be missing something   Thanks

Unable to enter the product key in the Convert License Type page (textbox is read-only)

We installed both WSS and MOSS SP2 and had planned to follow the manual fix for the known issue that the patch unexpectedly activates a trial expiration.  However, the textbox to enter the product key is read-only.  We have tried accessing this page using the normal administrator credentials as well as the farm account; no success.The SP2 issue and manual fix is detailed here, http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/971620We were able to experience this problem on a farm running the Feb 2007 cummulative patch (version so it's not related to the SP.  But running the SP increasing the need to find the fix.Any help is appreciated,J.

Hi, i have a gridview with textboxes in. a barcode reader is used to enter data in the textboxes in the grid. when something is scanned in the page does a full postback. so after a postback and after something has been scanned in, i want the focus to be moved to the next textbox in the row inside the gridview.  i have some code, but it doesnt seem to work. after the postback the focus is set to one of the textboxes outside the grid. i need it to recognise one of the textboxes in the grid. i have tried to use the findcontrol property to do this still doesnt work. please can anyone see where i am going wrong. what i wanted to do is for it to automatically tab to the next textbs in the gridview after a postback. please any advise on this would be much appreciated. thank you very muchprotected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e) { if (Page.IsPostBack) { WebControl wcICausedPostBack = (WebControl)GetControlThatCausedPostBack(sender as Page); int indx = wcICausedPostBack.TabIndex; var ctrl = from control in wcICausedPostBack.Parent.Controls.OfType<WebControl>() where control.TabIndex > indx select control; ctrl.DefaultIfEmpty(wcICausedPostBack).First().Focus(); } } protected Control GetControlThatCausedPostBack(Page page)

What wouldbe the best approach to accomplish validation as you enter into textbox


Here is what im wanting to do, i believe i have seen it done, but cant remember if it was while you were typing or at validation. But i think at validation would be fine.

We have a form that will allow you to enter an IP address. In the table, that is the primary key. I would like to validate either during the entry or upon submission if that value is already in the table, if it is, then they cannot submit.

Would it be best to use a compare validator and compare the entered value with a list of values returned from the table?

Any suggestions on how to accomplish would be great. 

textbox focus problem


I have a textbox (txtMaiden) and a radio button list (rblGender) in two separate User Controls that I'm using for a registration site. The txtMaiden control appears or disappears depending on whether Male or Female is designated on the radio button. This all works fine but I want the textbox to have focus when it becomes visible. As of now, it only gets focus when the page refreshes. Code follows. Any ideas?

<Prf:gender ID="GenderE" Gender='<%#Bind("Gender")%>' runat="server" />
<Prf:maiden ID="MaidenE" Maiden='<%#Bind("MaidenName")%>' Maiden_Disp='<%#Bind("MaidenName_Disp")%>'
    runat="server" />

<%@ Control Language="VB" AutoEventWireup="false" CodeFile="gender.ascx.vb" Inherits="userControls_profile_gender" %>
<asp:Panel ID="pnlGender" Visible="true" runat="server">
    <div class="label">
        <asp:Label ID="lblGender" Text="Sex:" runat="server" />
    <div class="ctrl">
                <asp:RadioButtonList ID="rblGender" AppendDataBoundItems="True" AutoPostBack="True"
