VB ASP.NET GridView Edit

I am using VS 2008 VB.net...  I have an aspx page with a gridview on it.

The issue I am having is when you select the "Edit" button, the page does a Post Back to change to Edit mode. and the Starts out at the top of the screen again. So you have to scroll down to find the Row you want to edit again.

How can I set the focus to the first textbox of the row being edited?

Thanks

On the RowCommand event, verify the event and if is Edit then set the focus to the control

try this

 Protected Sub GridView1_RowDataBound(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.GridViewRowEventArgs) Handles GridView1.RowDataBound
        If e.Row.RowType = DataControlRowType.DataRow AndAlso (e.Row.RowState And DataControlRowState.Edit) <> 0 Then
            Dim c As Control = e.Row.Cells(2).Controls(0)
            Me.SetFocus(c)
        End If

    End Sub

Also you can do this, set it programmatically

Page.MaintainScrollPositionOnPostBack = true
In the page declaration

<%@ Page MaintainScrollPositionOnPostback="true" %>
Or in the web.configs <system.web> section.

<pages maintainScrollPositionOnPostBack="true" />
This feature is an absolute must-have on large web pages built for postback scenarios.
