Did you solve the problem? I have the same problem when I form is loaded I want to focus in an input field but the jQuery focus function does not work properly: it focus the input but the label does not go up.

I tried to add the class active but it is not added.

How can I solve it?

I think $('#form1').on('focus', function() { $('#basicExampleModal').modal('show'); }) should work. I made a snippet for you, you can check it here:

You can try this.

Set focus() after shown-event

    $("#modal_window").on('', function(){

Hi, I have the same problem. I cannot set the focus on the input field. Neither with "autofocus" nor with Javascript ".focus()".

I am trying it with this page "login-page.html" from the templates folder of the mdbootstrap-pro folder. (I am using NPM via git to download the entire library).

I also tried this:

setTimeout(function() { $("#orangeForm-name").focus(); console.log("Focus set"); }, 500);

But this does not help either. Any ideas? I am using version MDB Pro 4.8.11

I have created a code snippet which focuses an input after 2s: Take a look if this code solves your problem, if not, create a similar code snippet with your case.

We have the same problem in Vue. We can focus and type only 1 character, after that, focus is losing, there is no error in console. It happens after we are updated to mdb version 5.8.2, with 5.6 we had no problems.

Hi, this bug is already fixed on dev branch on gitlab, so you can temporarily install dependencies from this branch, or wait until Monday - we will release bug fixes then. I apologize for the inconvenience. Kind regards, Magdalena

OK. Now i know what problem i am facing. When page loads at this time i am able to focus input field but when i drop input element through javascript or jquery $.post(); on body or any div element. i cannot focus this element.

Try the following code: HTML:
<div class="md-form">
    <input type="text" id="form1" class="form-control">
    <label for="form1" class="">Example label</label>
$(function() {

No Console log. There is not a single Error or warning on console. All the script are properly loaded but i cannot focus input field or textarea.

Any console logs?
