{INITIAL_FOCUS}

Syntax

{INITIAL_FOCUS}

Description

By default the control that has focus when a dialog is opened is the first control on the dialog, however, you may specify a different control.  The {INITIAL_FOCUS} command precedes the control that should have initial focus.

Example 

Here is an example where the third edit control in this dialog box gets the initial focus:

ui_dlg_box("Title",<<%dlg%
{region}
First|[.20first];
Second |[.20second];
Third |{initial_focus}[.20third];
Fourth|[.20fourth]
{endregion};
{region}
<*15&OK> <15&Cancel>
{endregion}
%dlg% )
if result = "&OK" then
   script_play(script)
end if

Note that the third control has focus.
