Default Focus on first edit text in forms


with Store Next, when creating a new order and entering customer firstname and name: there is no focus on a particular edit text in the form displayed at the time we have to enter customer firstname and name.

Scenario : I create an order in Store Next and go to cart for validation, then select 'Identify Customer' button to enter firstname and name. In that window no default edit text is selected (no cursor positionning) so enter characters makes nothing. I have first to select the first edit text to make the cursor appearing, then entering a name works fine.

By default, an edit text (or a control) should have the focus in displayed forms.
