Default set Focus to web control in Web form

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.

public void SetFocus(Control text)

            System.Text.StringBuilder sb = new System.Text.StringBuilder("");


Any Idea ?

Thanx in advance

You have to write the script, it doesn't magically appear. See thi slink, if you're using version 2.0 there are easier ways.
