I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

ok here is a little more info on what i want to do.

I have a gridview which displays a long, long, long list of records. If i were to select a record from the middle of the gridview for edititng when i click on update or cancel the web page is scrolled to the top.

Is there a way in which I can tell my code that it needs to scroll down to the record which I was dealing with.

i read the article...

I don't think my problem is to do with binding.

All i need to do I get gridview to set a new active cell or get the screen to scroll down cell i just used.

Maybe the latter idea can be done with html anchor tags....I really am not to sure.
