Allow Automatic Focus
.focus() event on page load to focus an input field.
Default Value: Off
This setting is disabled by default because for users focusing an input field, the on-screen keyboard appearing may be disorienting or frustrating for visitors, rather than allowing them to trigger the keyboard manually by touching inside an input field.
In some cases, you may want to turn this setting on to streamline data entry. For example, when using a keyboard wedge barcode scanner, where the iPad recognizes the scanner as an external keyboard, the automatic focus would allow scanning data to immediately fill an input field without requiring a user to interact.
