Prevent the focus on the first element in JavaScript (ES5) Dialog control

20 Apr 2021 / 1 minute to read

By default, the dialog focuses on the first elements of the content area which can be active and focusable. You can prevent this default focusing behavior using the open event and by enabling the preventFocus argument.

Bind the open event and enable the preventFocus argument within an event like the below sample.

// Initialization of Dialog component
var dialog = new ej.popups.Dialog({
    header: "Sign In",
    buttons: [{ buttonModel: { isPrimary: true, content: 'Yes' }, click: btnClick }, { buttonModel: { content: 'No'}, click: btnClick }],
    target: document.getElementById("container"),
    height: 'auto',
    width: '300px',
    open: onOpen
});
// Render initialized Dialog
dialog.appendTo('#dialog');

// Sample level code to handle the button click action
document.getElementById('targetButton').onclick = function () {
    // Call the show method to open the Dialog
    dialog.show();
};

function btnClick() {
    dialog.hide();
}

function onOpen(args: OpenEventArgs) {
  //Preventing the default dialog focus
  args.preventFocus = true;
