setfocus after alert in javascript

amy
I have a text box, once the user input the value in, I do a validate
to the input, if it's invalid, then do a alert and set focus to this
control.

The alert displays, but the set focus doesn't work.Here is the client
side javascript code,

if (run!="" && IsNumber(run)== false && decimalinputval id(run,2)==0 )
{
alert('This field only allows the entry of a maximum of 2 decimal
places. Please re-enter a correct value.');
//set focus
document.paperc altbl.printorde r.focus();
}

Please give some advise. Thanks in advance.

This has nothing to do with ASP, serverside coding.

Please see a clientside js NG.

The following code always prints the debug lines inside the conditional if statement before and after the alert statement when the session has timed out, but the alert and redirect only appear/work in certain situations. <% // Check for expired session log.debug("session ID = " + session.getAttribute("session_loginID")); if (session.getAttribute("session_loginID") == null)

i am trying to set focus to a specific control depending on the outcome of a validator control and it is not working. none of these methods are working to setfocus: 1. RegisterStartupScript("sf","<scriptlanguage='javascript'>document.form.MyControlID.focus();</script>"); 2. Andy Smith's FirstFocus control from http://www.metabuilders.com/tools/FirstFocus.aspx

I'm trying to setfocus on a textbox after an error conditions, but the compile insists that 'textbox.setfocus' isn't a valid command. I'm using all the web page default setting, but am creating it in a FrontPage environment. Does anyone know what I can do to make this command work?

So, basically, I need to detect whether an alert window was thrown. I can't find where it's thrown from but I need to disable a button only if there were no alert windows thrown. Any ideas? Thanks Alex

While reading c.l.j, I've noticed that some people prefer and indeed even recommend the use of "window.alert()" over "alert()". I can't find any technical reason to make this distinction, and seems to have a (tiny) amount overhead since window itself points to the global object, hence, a circular reference. (From everything I am reading, window is just a REFERENCE back to the global object, as opposed to a separate object.)

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it.
