    Set Focus in a form

    I am unable to find a way to set focus in one of my forms. I have auto-populated field and want to direct the customer to the first question text box. What kind of workaround can I implement?

    Hi Skybreck and welcome!

    You can set the tab indexes for the fields to make sure that the field you ant to set is where the form opens. Right click, go to properties and click on Display. Set the tab index to 1.

    You can programmatically do this with qRules SetFocus command but that requires a plugin and sandbox. We can help you there if you want to go that route.

    But, the tab index technique is the simplest. Big stick though.

    Hey Patrick. We spoke on the phone recently. Hilary was a big help in looking for a direction and I found a workaround that was suitable for the file attachments. Anyways, just wanted to thank you for your response. It worked however the tab index is under Advanced instead of Display :) Thanks again Patrick.
