Someone told me that is was possible to have a usercontrol refresh itself without the holding page being refreshed.

If this is true can someone please explain how!

Only possible when you put the user control inside FRAME or IFRAME.
Also some ActiveX may do your job.

Thanks Pstry

I'm trying to fix a common problem. I want to display the details of a row in a datagrid cell, but without the page scrolling back to the top. I'll try out some iframes....
Using the javascript below you can set the focus to the datagrid cell and prevent it from scrolling back after post backs.

<script language=javascript>
function scrollToCoordinates() {
  window.scrollTo(#FORM.scrollx#, #FORM.scrolly#);

function saveScrollCoordinates() {
  document.Form1.scrollx.value = (document.all)?document.body.scrollLeft:window.pageXOffset;
  document.Form1.scrolly.value = (document.all)?document.body.scrollTop:window.pageYOffset;

<body onload="javascript:scrollToCoordinates()">

Hope this helps

or you can try "document.all.datagridname.focus()"  on page load. So when the page loads the focus will come to the datagrid rather than the top
