    Hi Bala pls find the code

    You want ot set the focus to ur input element right? For this create a global static boolean flag;

    and the onAction of your button

    String name = wdContext.currentContextElement().getFirstName();

    if (name==null) {

    flag = true;

    } else {

    flag = false;


    and then write following code in wdDoModify....

    if (flag) {

    IWDInputField dri =

    (IWDDropDownByIndex) view.getElement("<index of input field>");


    flag = false;


    Please go through this thread
