Setting the focus to an applet in a web page.
I would like to get my applet to automatically get the input focus whenever the web page is loaded, so that keypresses are sent to the applet without having to click on it first. I understand that this is out of the applet's control, but the focus can be set by a script on the page. I have made various attempts at doing this e.g.:
<applet ......... etc.>
I have also tried placing it in a onLoad event handler, but I've still not been able to get it working. I've tried it in a form, but that didn't work either.
Help much appreciated....
Just a wild guess: have you tried to have a public method in the applet, then invoke
your applet is named theApplet in the html, and the method is called getFocused()
Its a wild guess though...
