Hello,

I am not able to keep the focus on my textbox after the postback.
After postback, my focus goes to the URL automatically.

Here is what I have in my cs code:
  protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
     
        Tbx_VIN.Focus();
    }
    protected void TextBox1_TextChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        Label4.Text ="VIN scanned:" +Tbx_VIN.Text;
        SqlDS_barcode.Insert();
        Tbx_VIN.Text = "";
        Tbx_VIN.Focus();
    }
    protected void GridView1_PreRender(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        Tbx_VIN.Focus();
    }

Thanks

Thanks but it does not work.
I forget to mention that I am using a scanner to scan a barcode.
It seems that the problem only occur if I use the  barcode scanner, if I just type something and click away, the focus will stay.

If this is an HTML5 project just add the parameter 'autofocus' to the control.  It might show as an error in the IDE, but it'll be fine and will validate .

One the client side(javascript), you can set the focus. Maybe "document ready" or "onload" events
