Problem with 'Focus'

Problem with 'Focus'

Problem with 'Focus'


I have this in my logon.aspx.vb file:

CODE -->

Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load

        Dim strEmail As String = ""

        If Not IsPostBack Then

            strEmail = String.Format("{0}", Request.QueryString("strEmail"))

        End If

        LblDate.Text = ReturnDate()


    End Sub 

where strEmail is the ID of my email textbox.

The error I get is that 'Focus' is not a member of 'String'. What should I be using instead of Focus, please?

Thank you.

RE: Problem with 'Focus'

You cannot set focus to a string.
What are you trying to do?
