Focus() method does not work for Application Type: Web RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm using Visual Studio 2012 to build a Lightswitch application. On one of my screens, I'm trying to set the focus to one of my textboxes. I decided to use the screen's Created event:

     partial void Home_Created()
                // Write your code here.
                this.FindControl("BarCodeEntry").ControlAvailable += new EventHandler<ControlAvailableEventArgs>(BarCodeEntry_ControlAvailable);
                this.FindControl("BarCodeEntry").ControlUnavailable += new EventHandler<ControlUnavailableEventArgs>(BarCodeEntry_ControlUnavailable);            
    The Focus() method seems to work fine when my Application Type is Desktop. But when I change my Application Type to Web, the Focus() does not work. The Textbox (called BarCodeEntry) does not get the focus. Home is the name of my screen.
