PhalaenopsisPhalaenopsis Posts: 20Member
Ok, I have 3 fields to enter SSN. there firs is to get the first 3 numbers say 333, the secon field gets the next 2 and the final gets that last 4 numbers of the social securty number. How can I make it so that once the user has entered the first 3 numbers the cursor automatically jumbs to the second field and then to the final third?

Can this be done at all? I am looking without success...

    Long time, since I wrote a javascript, but this is surely possible. To solve your problem, I suggest you to look at the following javascript script elements: EVENT "OnKeyPress" for catching the keyPress Event within the textbox, FUNCTIONS "String" for determinating the length of the values of the input fields and the function focus(), with which you can set the focus upon an element in your html form.
