    Google > How do they do it?

    go to www.google.com and look at that text field. For me, the cursor is already blinking before I click is... How did they do it? I tried to figure it out, and I need to know for this chat script I'm making.


    Thanks!

    This is what does it::

    function sf(){document.f.q.focus();}

    then throw a call to that in the onload......(and obviously rename to match your own form fields

    This is how they did it.
    They named their form f like this <form name="f"> and they named that particular input field q like this <input name="q">

    In the header they defined this function as javascript:
    <script>
    function sf(){document.f.q.focus();}
    </script>

    Then they called that function when the page loads by placeing the following in the body tag:
    OnLoad=sf()

    I hope that helps.
