Default Set focus on web control

I have an web form that validates all the controls placed on the form.

& want to set focus to the control that is not satisfying the validation.

I tried the below code but it is not setting the focus to the control.

possibly no javascript plz.

public void SetFocus(Control text)
 if(text.Page.IsStartupScriptRegistered("setFocus")) { return; }      System.Text.StringBuilder sb = new System.Text.StringBuilder("");  text.Page.RegisterStartupScript("setFocus",sb.ToString());

Any Idea ?

Thanx in advance

 Public Shared Sub SetFocus(ByVal page As System.Web.UI.Page, ByVal control As System.Web.UI.Control)
        Dim strScript As String = String.Format("document.getElementById('{0}').focu s();", control.ClientID)
        strScript = String.Format("<script language=""JavaScript"">{0}</script>", strScript)
        page.RegisterStartupScript("setFocus", strScript)
    End Sub

Then just call the function SetFocus(Me, Me.<control>)
