Jump to Tag in VB.NET / ASP.NET

Hi I am very new to web development - so I apologise in advance if this question seems disjointed.

I have two gridviews on a web page and when a record is selected on the first gridview. I want to jump to the area of the page that is displaying the second gridview.

Looking through EE, it seems like I need to use tags, but I have no idea how to, either in setting up a tag or how to jump there (this may be the disjointed bit :-)

I presume that the VB.NET code to jump there will be in the gridview1.selectedindexchanged event.

Many thanks for any help in getting me going again...
...Steve

yes - that is it - I have parentchild functionality working correctly - however the page is over the length of the screen, and therefore I just want to show the area of the page that contains the 2nd gridview.

Hi,

I appreciate that the link here http://authors.aspalliance.com/aldotnet/examples/dgautoscroll.aspx is based on DataGrids rather than GridViews, but the principle of what you want to achieve is there. Rather than hit the ItemDataBound for the first GridView as is similar in the example, edit the values in the second GridView. I hoipe this helps in some way. I'm battling with GridViews at the moment so I know how frustrating they can be.

Regards,

Lee

I have one trick coding for you......try it........

put a lable  like
<asp:Label ID="L1" runat="server"></asp:Label>
just below the 2nd gridview

& when you are setting the values to 2nd view or you want to show the area of the page that contains the 2nd gridview

use
L1.focus()


hope it helps for u :)
thanx :)

Like I said in the other post, try with SetFocus method, here's VB.net code for that:

Public Sub setFocus(ctrl As System.Web.UI.Control)
        Dim strS As String
        strS = "<SCRIPT language='javascript'>"
        strS = strS + "function SetFocus(){ "                 
        strs = strs + "document.getElementById"
        strs = strs + "('"
        strs = strs + ctrl.ID
        strs = strs + "').focus();"
        strS = strS + " } "                                             
        strS = strS + "window.setTimeout(SetFocus, 100);"    
        strs = strs + "</"
        strs = strs + "SCRIPT>"

        Page.RegisterStartupScript("focus", strS)
    End Sub

SetFocus() should work, as suggested by tusharashah.

BTW, based on your description of the page, I am wondering whether you have ever thought about the page layout optimization? A long long page may not be at the best interest to the user.

Hi tusharashah,

thank you for the code, I have inserted the setfocus function at the bottom of the webusercontrol ASP code, and tried to set the focus to my gridview2 using the following VB line in the gridview1.selectedindexchanged code

setFocus(Gridview2)

however I get an error stating

Name setFocus is not declared.

Have I missed something out. FYI I do store my vb code in a separate file of webusercontrol.aspx.vb

Thanks
...Steve

P.s. and thanks for the comment chuang4630

The issue seems to be related to scope now. Make sure that Scope of this function is same as function from where you are calling it.
