Set control focus after postback

When posting back from a click in and infragistics grid, I set the focus to a textbox control.  The cursor is there in the textbox (blinking cursor) however I still need to click the textbox with the mouse to type anything.

Perhaps I did not explain myself well enough.  The focus is in the textbox as the blinking cursor would indicate, but I cannot type anything into the textbox until I click it with the mouse.  I am using the following to set the focus.

Page.RegisterStartupScript("SetFocus", "<script>document.getElementById('" & txtTime.ClientID & "').focus();</script>")

This works if the page is loaded initially, but not on a postback (even though the blinking cursor would suggest otherwise).

Thanks for any help anyone can offer.  :^)

It appears to be an issue with the Infragistics grid control.  If I hide the grid, the focus stuff works normally.  Any way to disable the grid to allow the focus to work properly?

It was the infragistics control.  If you apply the following code at the end of the click event

UltraWebGrid1.DisplayLayout.ActiveCell.Activated = False

you can set the focus on another control.
