Setting focus in a php form


From: Erika Noll Webb

We're working on a project where we have a php form that displays new fields
after it makes a call to the database to determine what options will be
available based on user decisions previously in the form. I'm trying to
figure out a good way to reset the focus to the next section of the form
after each action. Does anybody know a good way to do this? Right now, the
page scrolls, but it's not really resetting the focus (although visually it
might seem like it does). It's a hack, and I'd like a cleaner and more
accessible solution.
