Say you have the following HTML in your aspx page. I am only
<HEAD>
<script language="javascript">
<!--
function test()
{
      Form1.TextSearch.select();
}
// -->
</script>
</HEAD>

...

<form id="Form1" method="post" runat="server">
      <asp:TextBox id="TextSearch" style="Z-INDEX: 102; LEFT: 40px; POSITION: absolute; TOP: 40px" runat="server" onfocus="test()">test</asp:TextBox>
</form>

Now when the textbox receives focus, the onfocus event is fired and the text in the textbox is selected

I think you should be able to change the test() function so that it dynamically takes the nameof the control that you want to work with as a parameter.

Eg. pseduo code

<HEAD>
<script language="javascript">
<!--
function test(ctl)
{
     Form1.ctl.select();
}
// -->
</script>
</HEAD>

...

<form id="Form1" method="post" runat="server">
     <asp:TextBox id="Text1" runat="server" onfocus="test(Text1)"></asp:TextBox>
     <asp:TextBox id="Text2" runat="server" onfocus="test(Text2)"></asp:TextBox>
     <asp:TextBox id="Text3" runat="server" onfocus="test(Text3)"></asp:TextBox>
     <asp:TextBox id="Text4" runat="server" onfocus="test(Text4)"></asp:TextBox>
</form>
