    Hey guys, hope you can help me

    to cut the chase:
    I have a form, it has a form validation, if somethin is wrong with the input of the user (invalid characters or emptry field or invalid email format), my form would yeild an error

    now here is the thing

    I want that if an error occur, the browser would scroll to the field where the error occured.

    ex.

    error on the email field, if so, on the next page load, after the validation, the user gets presented in front of the email field, so the user doesn't half to scroll down

    thank you in advance guys,

    more powers

    emailfield.focus(); would do the trick in Javascript. There really isn't a way server-side that isn't awkward.

    However, you'll also have to run a check to make sure the user didn't already have his/her focus set because of a previous error in the event that (s)he makes multiple errors.
