Hello Experts,

On button click, I need to be able to set the focus to an item in a radiobuttonlist.
Just can't seem to figure this out.

Thanks!

Can you try this

Drop a panel on the form and put a RadioButtonList on the panel.  Then you set focus to the panel.        

SetFocus(this.PanelRadioList);

Can you try this.

ListItem selectedItem = radioButtonList.SelectedItem;
selectedItem.Attributes.Add("onload", "this.focus();");

Hello Everyone,
As it turns out, Praveenvenu's solution worked.  Honestly, I don't understand why.  Does setting focus to a container in effect set focus to the first item in the container?
GiftsonDJohn, thanks for the solution but looks like Praveenvenu got there first.
I appreciate all the help, thanks very much!
