This is to get rid of dotted lines that comeup around a link on a webpage when the link is clicked. As you see in the image what I am referring to.
Simply drag this extension on your page/master page. No configuration

I can its usefulness, however for tab-index you may need the focus if you are going through a form for example.

@ me if that is the case as bendigo has mentioned then we can do this

Code: Select all

<style type="text/css">
a:focus
{
  -moz-outline: none 0;
  outline: none 0;
}
</style>
Also if usinfg a form and the push button gives the same we need to add onfocus="this.blur(); to the button as shown below

<input type="submit" onfocus="this.blur();" />

Hi Bacon,
Little confused....
Should I use this:
<style type="text/css">
a
{
-moz-outline: none 0;
outline: none 0;
}
</style>
Or
This:
<style type="text/css">
a:focus
{
-moz-outline: none 0;
outline: none 0;
}
</style>
in the general extension (without form)

Further, looking into your code
Also if usinfg a form and the push button gives the same we need to add onfocus="this.blur(); to the button as shown below

<input type="submit" onfocus="this.blur();" />
Do you suggest I add this in the extension as--
Using form: Yes/ No (Yes will remove // and apply the below code. This way works in php but I am not sure here-though a page with a form will always be in php! :? )
//<input type="submit" onfocus="this.blur();" />
Or this should be added manually if someone is using a form?

No this doesnt need to be added I only gave this as a example for use with form buttons :)

The amended code with focus was as bedigo mentioned regarding the same issue that may appear if using tabs, I have tested both and they work the same...there is another method for using form buttons but this only works for gecko browsers such as firefox as it doesnt work in IE it not worth adding to the code.

Ok, so the current extension requires no change and I will leave it the way it is it?

This is weird.
I normally use Maxthon Classic browser and the extension doesn't work.
I tried IE8, Chrome, Firefox, Slimbrowser and Avant and they all worked!!
I'll have a look at my Maxthon settings to see if there is anything there although it uses the Trident engine (same as IE) so I doubt if I'll find anything.

I could be wrong here but it is because Maxthon doesnt support CSS2 styling fully only partially and requires a seperate plugin to do so...you could take a look at the Maxthon forum and find out more regarding this....
You can try this, it is untested for Maxthon as I dont use it and as I have mentioned it does not fully support CSS2 styling so it simply may not work due to this...Note this has nothing to do with WB but with how Maxthon works sorry....

Code: Select all

<style type="text/css">
a:focus 
{
outline: 0;
}
</style>
Or try this:

Code: Select all

<script type="text/javascript">
for(i=0;i<=document.links.length-1;i++) {document.links.[i]hideFocus='true'}
</script>

Thanks BaconFries, I tried both without success.
BUT I repeated the original code on my other PC which runs IE7 and only Firefox and Chrome work.
So it looks like it's a Trident engine issue that IE7 uses and Maxthon Classic issue with IE8's Trident engine.
It's no big deal, thanks anyway.
