I have Panel with some control in it. At the very bottom of panel, I have checkbox which has Autopost=True.
When I click on checkbox, Panel takes me to first control at the top in the panel. It does not maintain its position.

you can store the position of the panel in a hiddenfield and on the page load reset the position with javascript

javascript is first,  on your panel add onscroll="SaveScrollPosition();"

this is c# code but should be close to the same in VB
put this in your pageload, the datetime now is added so the id will be unique
ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript(this.GetType(), "RestorePosition" + DateTime.Now.Ticks, "RestoreScrollPosition()", true);
           
put this in the page or a sepereate js file
<script type="text/javascript">
    function SaveScrollPosition()
    {
        pnl=document.getElementById('Panel1')
        hdn=document.getElementById('hdnScrollPosition')
        hdn.value=pnl.scrollTop;
    }
    function RestoreScrollPosition()
    {
        pnl=document.getElementById('Panel1')
        hdn=document.getElementById('hdnScrollPosition')
        pnl.scrollTop=hdn.value;
    }
    </script>

actually you will need to use
ScriptManager.RegisterStartupScript(this.UpdatePanel1, this.UpdatePanel1.GetType(), "RestorePosition" + DateTime.Now.Ticks, "RestoreScrollPosition()", true);

I am getting following error
"Conversion from string "RestorePosition" to type 'Double' is not valid."

It worked fine and got expected when I added .ToString  after DateTime.Now.Ticks, in following script,

ScriptManager.RegisterStartupScript(this.UpdatePanel1, this.UpdatePanel1.GetType(), "RestorePosition" + DateTime.Now.Ticks.ToString, "RestoreScrollPosition()", true);

Is that OK?

I am also getting following error in javascript but i got desired result.
Line: 93
Char: 24
Error: Expected ';'
Code:0

I did viewsource and tried to locate that error but could not figure out? Any suggestions?

Thanks.

yeah that is fine, in C# it must auto convert it
you need a ; after the RestoreScrollPosition(),
ScriptManager.RegisterStartupScript(this.UpdatePanel1, this.UpdatePanel1.GetType(), "RestorePosition" + DateTime.Now.Ticks.ToString, "RestoreScrollPosition();<----------", true);

so use this
ScriptManager.RegisterStartupScript(this.UpdatePanel1, this.UpdatePanel1.GetType(), "RestorePosition" + DateTime.Now.Ticks.ToString, "RestoreScrollPosition();", true);

It works perfectly fine if I put alert script in following function,

function RestoreScrollPosition()
    {
       alert('anything');
        pnl=document.getElementById('Panel1')
        hdn=document.getElementById('hdnScrollPosition')
        pnl.scrollTop=hdn.value;
    }

if I put alert it perfectly fine. I am surprise what alert can make difference?

Thanks.

try adding the ; to all the items-- dangit
but not sure why it would work with an alert in there
function RestoreScrollPosition()
    {
       pnl=document.getElementById('Panel1');
        hdn=document.getElementById('hdnScrollPosition');
        pnl.scrollTop=hdn.value;
    }

It has been fixed now by adding few lines in procedures. Thanks for your help.
function SaveScrollPosition()
        {  
            window.setTimeout("SetNow('" + document.getElementById("myHidden").innerHtml + "')",2000);
            pnl=document.getElementById('Panel1');
            hdn=document.getElementById('hdnScrollPosition');
            hdn.value=pnl.scrollTop;
        }
       
        function RestoreScrollPosition()
        {    
            document.getElementById("myHidden").innerHtml = document.getElementById("Panel1").scrollTop;        
            pnl=document.getElementById('Panel1');
            hdn=document.getElementById('hdnScrollPosition');        
            pnl.scrollTop=hdn.value;
        }
