I am using a footer in a GridView to "add" items to the gridview via a textbox and button combination and the GridView is inside an UpdatePanel.  That's working fine.  

What I would like to do is have the textbox receive focus after the partial page update.  How can I do that?

Is there an event on the UpdatePanel I can capture/code that will do this?
<asp:UpdatePanel ID="upnlEditUsers" runat="server">             
            <ContentTemplate>             
                <asp:Panel ID="pnlUsers" runat="server" Height="300" style="text-align:left;">                     
                    <asp:GridView ID="gvUsers" runat="server"                              
                            CellPadding="3"  CellSpacing="0"
                            Width="350px" 
                            PagerStyle-HorizontalAlign="center"                          
                            AutoGenerateColumns="false"                                                                                
                             ShowFooter="true"
                            ShowHeader="true" 
                            OnRowCommand="gvUsers_RowCommand" 
                            DataKeyNames="PersonID, RequestID" 
                            OnRowDataBound="gvUsers_RowDataBound" 
                        >
                        <AlternatingRowStyle CssClass="altRowStyle" />

You can use UpdatePanel.Load Event. Something like the code below:
Please Notice that you should use the ScriptManager.SetFocus Method!

<body>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server"></asp:ScriptManager>
    <div>
        <asp:UpdatePanel ID="MyUpdatePanel" runat="server" onload="MyUpdatePanel_Load">
            <ContentTemplate>
                <asp:TextBox ID="TextBox1" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>
            </ContentTemplate>
            <Triggers>
                <asp:AsyncPostBackTrigger ControlID="MyButton" EventName="Click" />
            </Triggers>
        </asp:UpdatePanel>
        
        <asp:Button ID="MyButton" runat="server" />
        <asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" Text="äê× çÕÑå" OnClick="btnPrint_Click" />
    </div>
    </form>
</body>
 
and here is the c# Code.
========================
   protected void MyUpdatePanel_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        ScriptManager1.SetFocus(TextBox1);
    }
