Controlling Focus: setting cursor in asp:server controls

Hi, I need to know how to position the cursor in asp:server controls on load and after postbacks in VB.net.  I have had no success finding functions for this purpose such as gotfocus() or setfocus(). Have also tried Javascript to no avail. Just need to know class and functions to access control of the cursor or javascript to provide cursor control. Thank You

If by cursor you mean mouse pointer...

I know with WinForms you can set the position like this

        Me.Cursor.Position = New Point(3, 5)

.... however, as for ASP.NET im not sure, but maybe there is something similar within it?

Sorry I can't be much more help but I can't set up ASP.NET apps at the moment

well the controls are rendered at the client so the code to manipulate focus must run on client. So you naturally need some scripting language say JavaScript
like this...

document.YourFormName.YourTextBoxname.focus();

you can call this on say the <Body onLoad ...>
