Odoo 9: Html field is present in the Form, sets the cursor pointer into it.

In Project-Task:

Description field is of type HTML, hence whenever we try to create a new record, odoo will automatically focus the cursor pointer to the description field instead of the field Task-Title (which is the first field/top-most field present in the form)

Hence how can I set cursor-pointer focus on the first field.

You can use tabindex attribute to reorganize cursor focus. check this answer for more details ...

Hope this could helps

This served the purpose, however using tab I couldn't navigate to those fields, as I understand it this property removed the tab focus.

So I used other way, just made the Title field as Required, so pointer re-focused to enter the data.

Actually, at first the Curson on a title, but description field take time to load, hence the cursor moved to the description field.
