I would like the cursor / caret to be focused in my newly created text area when the below event is triggered. For some reasons it's not happening. Perhaps I am not understanding the jQuery documentation. Can you see the below code and advise?
var $this = $(this);
//clone a new textArea
var $textArea= $("#textAreaTemplate").clone(true);
//assign a unique identifier. Note intID is a global incrementer. In the actual code it gets incremented.
$textArea.attr("id", "textArea" + intId);
//*** doesn't put the caret into the new text Area.
//*** this doesn't work either
$("#textArea" + intId).focus();
