I have developed a program in which when i click on a button,
A new text field is created...

Suppose i clicked on the button 10 times,
10 text fields will be created...

The cursor lies on the very first textfield,
I want that cursor should be on the last field created...

How is it possible...
I think that this is the case of focus...

Please guide me!!!

document.forms[0].field.focus()

Here "field" is the name of the text field. Using this you can set focus to particular field in the form.

The method with the join-the-dots and focus() looks incorrect. You probably want to invoke this method, but I am not sure it will guarantee to take the focus.

Moving to our GUIs forum.

Actually, the API, "strongly encourages" you to use the requestFocusInWindow() method.
