[CLOSED] Cursor in Edit Box
I'm working on an html page in my 8206 environment. I have an html page where a value comes into the page using !IBI.AMP. to fill in the value. There are times that this value is missing so I have a default value of '' if the value is missing (I have also tried actually making it MISSING). When the value is missing or '', as I'm tabbing/clicking through the fields, it sets the cursor to the right of the edit/text boxes instead of all the way to the left. I know it's !IBI.AMP because if I don't have this value populating a field, the cursor goes to the left as expected. Does anyone know what property I need to set to put the cursor to the left? I'm an html GUI guy, so somehow to do this via GUI would be preferable. Thanks!

Evan, What I would do is take a look at the HTML that is being generated with !IBI.AMP versus without. Then look into javascript/jquery to see if you can add/remove the difference.

I ran a quick test and this seems to work
you can set the caret position to whatever (0 is the beginning)
  
function onInitialUpdate(){

    setCaretPosition('edit1',3);

}

function setCaretPosition(elemId, caretPos) {

    var elem = document.getElementById(elemId);

    //var elem = document.getElementById(elemId);

   elem.setSelectionRange(caretPos, caretPos);

}

Thank you for the reply. I will give this a look.
