Select All Text in ASP.NET Text Box or Highlighting the text in a textbox when it gets focus

23 Sep

How do I select all the text in a .Net text box when user clicks in that box to type information?

I have a text box, txtContractorId that has “Enter Id Here” in it by default. When the click in that box I want to select all the text so they can just start typing

In page load:
TextBox1.Attributes[“onmouseover”] = “javascript:this.focus();”;
TextBox1.Attributes[“onfocus”] = “;”;

TextBox1.Attributes(“onmouseover”) = “javascript:this.focus();”
TextBox1.Attributes(“onfocus”) = “;”
