How to set focus on first textbox of the page

Below I have given the complete sample code where the cursor will be placed on first textbox when the page loads.

Code:

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head id="Head1" runat="server">
    <title>Ashish's Blog</title>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.4.4/jquery.min.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
        $(function () {
            $('form input:text:enabled:first').focus();
        }); 
    </script>
</head>
<body>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <asp:TextBox ID="TextBox1" runat="server" />
 
    <asp:TextBox ID="TextBox2" runat="server" />
 
    <asp:TextBox ID="TextBox3" runat="server" />
 
    <asp:TextBox ID="TextBox4" runat="server" />
 
    </form>
</body>
</html>

UPDATE:

If you first textbox is disabled

$(document).ready(function() {
    $('input[type=text]:enabled:first').focus();
});

If you first textbox is not visible

$(document).ready(function() {
    $('input[type=text]:visible:first').focus();
});

Thanks.

Using Web Service (.NET) in Classic ASP via SOAP

Web services are a great tool to share data across many data sources within a single organization, even if the owners of the different sources don’t want to give others direct access to the data.
here I am showing how you can call web service in classic asp.
To start, create a Web Service in Visual Studio.NET or use existing web service.
here is my web service login.asmx coding file (login.cs),

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.Services;
using System.Web.Script.Services;
///
/// Summary description for Login
/// <code>
[WebService(Namespace = "http://ashishblog.com/")]
[WebServiceBinding(ConformsTo = WsiProfiles.BasicProfile1_1)]
// To allow this Web Service to be called from script, using ASP.NET AJAX, uncomment the following line.
[ScriptService]
public class Login : System.Web.Services.WebService {
[WebMethod]
public int LoginValidate(string email, string PW)
{
bool OK = false; 

// validate email or pW
if(email =="ash[email protected]" && PW=="ashish")
{
OK = true;
}
return OK;
}
}

Asp.Net Form Validation using JQuery Validation Plugin

JQuery Validation plugin is very easy to use and has the advantage of being highly customizable both in functionality, such as validation rules. The purpose of this tutorial is a few lines of JavaScript specify the form and apply the validation plugin.
When it comes to client-side validate asp.net form, jQuery Validation plugin is one of the best in business. Here, I am trying to show you how to use jQuery Validation plugin in Asp.Net Form.

Step 1:

You need jQuery library and jQuery Validation plugin

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.3.2/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.microsoft.com/ajax/jquery.validate/1.5.5/jquery.validate.min.js"></script>

Step 2:

The easiest way to specify validation rules is to add classes to form elements

<form id="form1" runat="server" >
<asp:TextBox ID="txtName" runat="server" class="required" ></asp:TextBox>
<asp:TextBox ID="txtage" runat="server" class="required number" minlength="2"></asp:TextBox>
<asp:TextBox ID="txtEmail" runat="server" class="required email"></asp:TextBox>
<asp:TextBox ID="txtPass" runat="server" TextMode="Password"  class="required"></asp:TextBox>
<asp:TextBox ID="txtRePass" runat="server" TextMode="Password" equalto="#txtPass" class="required" ></asp:TextBox>
<asp:TextBox ID="txtUrl" runat="server" class="required url">http://</asp:TextBox>
<asp:Button ID="btnSubmit" runat="server" Text="submit" />
</form>

Above form you may notice that I added class “required”, “number”, “email” etc.. and attribute equalto , minlength etc..

txtName :::
required – value required
txtage ::
required number – valid number required
minlength=”2″ – min two digit required
txtEmail::
required email – valid email required
txtRePass::
equalto – txtRePass value must equal to txtPass
txtUrl::
required url – valid Url required

        $(document).ready(function () {
		$("#form1").validate();
                                  });
</script>
