Set focus and cursor to end of text input field / string w. Jquery [duplicate]

You can do this using Input.setSelectionRange, part of the Range API for interacting with text selections and the text cursor:

var searchInput = $('#Search');

// Multiply by 2 to ensure the cursor always ends up at the end;
// Opera sometimes sees a carriage return as 2 characters.
var strLength = searchInput.val().length * 2;

searchInput[0].setSelectionRange(strLength, strLength);

Demo: Fiddle
