I have a web page that contains several user defined controls inside an update panel. When one of them is updated and a TAB is pressed, a postback is automatically generated. Code on the server side is supposed to populate several textboxes if the data item is found and then set the focus to a specific textbox on the form (inside the update panel). In most browsers this worked as expected. However, the ultimate target is a barcode scanner based on a PocketPC and no matter what I do, I can't seem to get it to return from the postback and have the focus in the field where I set it.
I cannot just mandate the client update the barcode scanner. I need something that will help me code around this problem and QUICKLY as I am in a severe time crunch on this one. I really need an answer by Noon Eastern U.S. time on Monday.
Thanks in Advance,
