Javascript Question

Setting focus to a textbox when a function is called

I currently have a textbox in my aspx:

<input type="text" id="myTextbox" value="" />


I was wondering if I could set the focus (put my cursor in that text box) every time my JavaScript method is called. I was hoping it would work along the lines of this:

function setFocus() {
document.getElementById("myTextbox").Focus();
}


Any suggestions?

Invoke the lowercase .focus() function:

function setFocus() {
    document.getElementById("myTextbox").focus();
}
