Default Programatically scroll from datagrid to a textbox

My windows form is in "form layout mode".

Essentially what I want to know how to do is using javascript or server side script (I am indifferent) I want my webpage to scroll to a text-box below my datagrid and setfocus within that textbox.

I have a paging datagrid that has an Edit Link/column (using the OnEdit handler) but I don't overlay textboxes inline on the grid... Instead I populate a form at the bottom part of page. I do this because some fields have lengthy data and I want to eventually use listboxes etc and I haven't figured out yet how to do them on the form. Within my OnEdit handler I set several textboxes with the data from the form, a button calls a method to do a database update.

Client side in load event.



Or server side:

txtTextboxName.Attributes.Add("onload", "document.frmFormName.txtTextboxName.setfocus( );")


Also, doing a Google search on:

"setting the focus to a textbox using javascript"

will turn up several things for you.
