I been working on this problem for two days and have gotten no where. Tried tutorial on http://www.w3schools.com/jsref/met_html_focus.asp to no avail. If anyone can guide me in the right direction. Problem then code below:
Within the <script> tags create a function named loadform() that displays current date in the form date field and then moves the cursor focus to the qtyl field and selects it. Hint - apply both the focus () and select methods to the qtyl input field. Run the loadform function when the page is loaded.
