I want my cursor to move to the new text_input which is being made after I hit enter in the previous text area


So I made a conversational chatbot using list and streamlit. But when Whenever I press enter the cursor doesn’t move to the new text input neither the page moves down any idea how I can do it?

Steps to reproduce

Code snippet:

    global c
    ref = st.text_input("Enter text here",key=c, label_visibility="collapsed", placeholder="Enter text here👇")
    if (ref and ref!="stop"):
        chat = Chat(history, reflections)
        respo = chat.respond(ref)        
        st_message(respo, is_user=True)
        c = c+1
