Handling element focus with tab

 / Published in: JavaScript

This uses prototype to intercept tab focus and place it on a button (or any other element). Firefox and Safari will bypass the button when tabbing through a form. Useful for buttons after textareas.

  1. Event.observe($('body'), 'keypress', function(event){
  2. if(event.keyCode == Event.KEY_TAB) {
  3. $('sendMessage').focus();
  4. Event.stop(event);
  5. }});
