Auto focus a textbox

Hello everyone,

I'm building a simulation navigable by barcode scanner, and need textboxes on every page to have focus without clicking into them.

I've seen multiple posts on this topic where the solution was to have the textbox on the bottom-most layer of the timeline but that hasn't worked for me (see screenshot).

Is there anything else I should be trying, has anyone else had the same issue?

Hi Nick,

This used to be single line in JavaScript, you can see the example here:

Until the recent updates in Storyline. jQuery is no longer bundled with Storyline. You can still use this example but also need to include jQuery. See the thread here:

The attached example should work as a template.
