SetFocus on first screen


I try to focus the first field on a screen with SetFocus but it don't work. This probleem only exists for me on the first screen when I open the app. In all other cases SetFocus is working very well.

I used the SetFocus function in the Onvisible trigger of the screen.

This is not working.

Thanks for your answer. The field is a field on the screen and not a field in a gallery.

I read the limits, but none are mine case. We use a handheld scanner with Android and using Chrome. I try an other scanner and I found the same issue. I think it's not possible to set the focus on a field when opening the app when you used a empty screen.

The customer knows and accept the limits.

Thanks for help.

Use a hidden timer on the screen with a duration of 1 and autostart set to true.  Put Setfocus in the OnTimerEnd property
