For some reason, introducing an AJAX TabContainer with multiple Tabs forces the scroll position to return to 'just below' the top every time a tab panel is changed.

I have exhausted my patience on trying to implement the solution described here
http://weblogs.asp.net/andrewfrederick/archive/2008/03/04/maintain-scroll-position-after-asynchronous-postback.aspx

I assume its got something to do with using nested masterpages. All examples only extend to simple masterpages.

Have the following in my web.config
<pages maintainScrollPositionOnPostBack="true"> blah blah..................
</pages>

Seriously thinking of abandoning tabContainers as have had numerous issues so please help.

have tried removing maintainScrollPositionOnPostBack="true">
from web.config but still cannot maintain scroll position on tab change.

It is worth noting that if I simply refresh the page using F5 then the page WILL return to the last scroll position.

Every other AJAX control does not have this problem unless a tabContainer is on the page.

For instance, I placed a simple radio button on the bottom of the page below the TabContainer with auto postback turned on. When I change the value of the radiobutton it also returns scroll to the top.

Now if I take away the entire TabContainer and add a bunch of </br>'s to take it place but change nothing else, then the changing of the same radiobutton will maintain scroll position.

Any further help will be appreciated and tested but I have already started building my own tab container using buttons and panels. This has its benefits already as I can easily add some ajax animations etc. More flexibility but messy as.
