I have a textbox in a updatepanel that I want to give focus after the asyncpostback is finished.

I have tried putting Page.RegisterStartupScript("dofocus", "<script Language=JavaScript> document.all.txtChatMsg.focus(); </script>") in the Load event of the UpdatePanel where the textbox is located but it has no effect. I couldnt even find it in the browser source for the page.

How should I be doing this?
