set focus on search Icon after typing text

Hi All,

I am trying to set focus to the searchIcon1 after I type something in the search text box. 

Most of my users are using a link to the App on their PC and they would like to be able to hit the enter key to perform the search. 

I tried to SetFocus(SearchIcon1) on the "OnChange" event, but it doesn't do anything.

 

TIA,

Joe

The SetFocus will make the icon “active” but pressing enter won’t actually do anything unless there is some code in the OnSelect property of the icon I think. Do you have any code in OnSelect?

Another alternative would be to use this code in OnChange instead. It will trigger the search automatically and not require Enter to be pressed.

Select(Your_Icon_Name)
