HTML5 introduced a new attribute called autofocus that would be used as follows:
<input type = "text" name = "search" autofocus/>
This attribute is supported by latest versions of Mozilla, Safari and Chrome browsers only.
You can try to run the following code to learn how to work with autofocus attribute:
<!DOCTYPE HTML> <html> <body> <form action = "/cgi-bin/html5.cgi" method = "get"> Enter email : <input type = "text" name = "newinput" autofocus/> <p>Try to submit using Submit button</p> <input type = "submit" value = "submit" /> </form> </body> </html>
