You're JavaScript is missing some an ending bracket "}" and a semi-colon

Here is the source that worked for me. You will have to change the onkeyup
to onkeyup(event, this, 'ssn1');. That just gives it a little better cross
browser support.

function autotab(e, original, destination) {
var evtObj = window.event ? event : e;
var code = evtObj.which ? evtObj.which : evtObj.keyCode;
if (code == 9 || //tab
code == 16 || //backtab
code >= 37 && code <= 40 || //arrow keys
code == 45 || //insert
code == 46 || //delete
evtObj.shiftKey) //shift
return false;
} // no autotab on tab/backtab/insert/delete/shift

if(original.getAttribute &&
(original.value.length==original.getAttribute("maxlength"))) {
elem = document.getElementById(destination);

Hi all I am having some trouble getting this to work.

I am getting an error Elem is null or not an object.

here is my java script:

function autotab(original,destination)

if (document.all) // if IE

if (event.keyCode == 9 || //tab
event.keyCode == 16 || //backtab
event.keyCode >= 37 && event.keyCode <= 40 || //arrow keys
event.keyCode == 45 || //insert
event.keyCode == 46 || //delete
event.shiftKey) //shift
{ return } // no autotab on tab/backtab/insert/delete/shift


elem = document.getElementById(destination);

and here is my jsf code that is invoking the function:

styleClass="inputText" id="ssn1"
onkeyup="autotab(this, 'ssn2');"
<hx:validateConstraint regex="^[0-9]+$"

<h:inputText styleClass="inputText" id="ssn2"
size="2" onkeyup="autotab(this,'ssn3');"

<h:inputText styleClass="inputText" id="ssn3"
size="4" maxlength="4">
<hx:validateConstraint regex="^[0-9]+$"
