Focus after validation error

Is it possible to re-set focus to an object after a validation (pattern) error? I don't want the user being able to exit an object when there is a validation error.

Hi!



The problem isn't to set focus to the control but to set focus after the pattern validation. Is there any way to determine if the pattern validation errors and then set focus?



As it is now, a dialog shows and says "Your postalcode must be 5 digits" and then the cursor jumps to the next textfield. I want the cursor to return to the control that didn't verify correctly.

The easiest way to convert a picture validation to a script validation is to use the formcalc format() function.

E.g. the formcalc script to validate a US zip code would look like:



format("text{99999}", $) <> ""

That's a pretty big job to do that but I am starting to realize that I don't have any other option. Thanks for your help!
