select field content on trigger not working with chrome

select field content on trigger not working with chrome

select field content on trigger not working with chrome

(OP)
I have this

CODE

<input id="width0" class="rfqmusthave" type="text" style="width: 85%;" maxlength="7" value="0.00" name="width[]" onblur="$(this).toNumber(); calcClass('0');" onkeyup="$(this).toNumber();" onclick="$(this).select();" onfocus="$(this).select();" onmouseup="return false"> 

if you click or tab into field with FireFox, IE or Edge it works - Chrome, in the other hand, selects in a flash and places cursor at end of field.

What can I do to get chrome to select and keep content selected?

Thank you all in advance for your help!

RE: select field content on trigger not working with chrome

I would recommend you stop using event attributes and use the jquery 'on' method to bind event handlers via an external JS file.

Also what does the error console show (F12), if anything?
