AJAX :: Toolkit ScriptManger SetFocus To Set Focus At End Of The TEXTBOX.?

I have made a chat application which is working fine but to refresh the text messages which is seen by user 1 and input by user 2 I have used timer.Timer periodically updates messages and ScriptManger1.SetFocus(TextBox1.ClientID) sets the focus but.. when I do so ,user 1 (if) inputting text watches message box being repopulated but at the same time all the text he wrote in yet to send textbox text is washed away!!!So how can we set focus at the end of the textbox text?

AJAX :: Scriptmanager.SetFocus Set's Focus But Can't Type?
I have a page with an AJAX updatePanel, inside the update panel there is a PlaceHolder. The placeholder is filled with a usercontrol dynamically. The user control contains a simple webform.On the webform there is a field which postsback automatically, on the postback I call the functionScriptmanager.SetFocus(nexttextbox); to set the focus to the next control.When this is run the focus is set to the correct textbox but when I start typing no text appears although I see the cursus in the correct textbox. I also noticd that when using TAB the focus goes to internet explorer itself instead of going through the fields in the form. This happens only after the postback.

I have a page with a panel on it. Inside the panel is a login control. The panel also has the AJAX toolkit rounded corner extender. I want to set the focus to the login control on load. I add Login1.Focus() to my Page_Load but nothing happens. If I remove the AJAX toolkit rounded corner extender, all is well. The focus is set to the login control on page load. So, I suspected a container problem, I altered my code to:

AJAX :: UpdatePanel - Get Focus On Textbox
I have run across an issue recently while incorporating AJAX into one of my applications. The issue demonstrates either my fundamental lack of understanding about how this technology works, or a problem in my implementation of it. I have created an bare-bones simple example to demonstrate what I'm seeing. I know how to remedy the problem, but I'd prefer the discussion center around *WHY* it's happening.

Here are the details.  Consider a project with a default.aspx. That page has two controls, Button1 and PlaceHolder1. The project also contains as usercontrol, uc1.ascx, which simply contains a TextBox control, TextBox1. The click event of Button1 dynamically loads uc1 into the placeholder via the Page.LoadControl method. All I really want to do is set focus to to TextBox1 after the control is loaded.  Without the UpdatePanel, I can do it two ways.  I can either put TextBox1.Focus(); in UC1's page load event, or I can register a startup javascript to find the textbox and use its focus() method. Either way works fine. See example code below.

Now introduce UpdatePanel. Enclose Button1 and PlaceHolder1 in the same UpdatePanel. The result, no focus to the textbox.  Move Button1 outside of the UpdatePanel, focus will work.  Fundamental question is - WHY?  Why does it matter where that button control is in relation to the Placeholder and UpdatePanel.  I've done a lot of searching on this topic and I've found lots of questions but not many answers.  Here's the code I'm using, to get focus to work correctly, move Button1 outside of the UpdatePanel:

<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="Default.aspx.cs" Inherits="_Default" %>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1//EN" "">
<html xmlns="">
<head runat="server">
<title>Untitled Page</title>
<form id="form1" runat="server">
<asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server" />
<asp:UpdatePanel ID="up1" runat="server">
<asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" Text="Load UC1" OnClick="Button1_Click" />
<br />
<asp:PlaceHolder ID="PlaceHolder1" runat="server"></asp:PlaceHolder>
Button1_Click Event:
protected void Button1_Click (object sender, EventArgs e)
Control ctrl = new Control();
ctrl = Page.LoadControl("uc1.ascx");
ctrl.ID = "DynamicCtrl";
<%@ Control Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="uc1.ascx.cs" Inherits="uc1" %>
UserControl 1 <br />
<asp:TextBox ID="TextBox1" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>
using System;
using System.Web.UI;
public partial class uc1 : System.Web.UI.UserControl
protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
//use either of these two lines in the example
ScriptManager.RegisterStartupScript(this, typeof(UserControl), "focus", "document.getElementById('DynamicCtrl_TextBox1').focus();", true);

AJAX :: Keep TextBox Focus After UpdatePanel Update
i have a Textbox and a few update panels. But each time the update panel clicks, then the focus on the textbox is gone So for example, we all know that when a user clicks on a textbox, there will be a blinking | symbol. But each time my panel updates, the focus on the textbox goes. Does anyone know how i could keep the focus on? as in, each time there is an update, still keep that textbox | symbol blinking.

AJAX :: Easy: Message On TextBox Focus?
I have what I hope is an easy request.I'm not sure if I can use an AJAX control or whether the solution will be entirely javascript.I have the following user input form.

What I'd like is when the user's cursor is in the SSN textbox, I want the "Entire SSN or last 4 digits" message to appear next to the input textbox.When the SSN textbox loses focus,I want the message to disappear.

The SSN textbox has a text mode of "password" so I can't use a TextBoxWatermark.

AJAX :: Unable To Maintain Focus On Dynamically Created Textbox
i have a WSS 3.0 Webpart that contains an UpdatePanel with a customized SPGridView. I want to provide instant filtering of data by adding a textbox below the column header when the column shall be filterable. There is a jQuery based solution for this on the net, but it's totally client side and doesn't work with paging, so i tried it on my own.

In the CreateChildControls of my SPGridViewExt class i have :

I've also overridden the DoFilterPostBackEventProcessing method to create a "[ColumnName] LIKE '%[textbox.value]%'" filterExpression for my datasource which also creates the LIKEFILTER_COLUMN and LIKEFILTER_VALUE ViewState Items so i can identify the textbox that should refocus on after the postback. The filtering itself works great, but whatever i try, i am not able to set the focus to the textbox after entering the first letter.


All these four methods don't work. The registerstartupscript call doesn't even render the script when i search the page source after postback. I also tried to add a HiddenField to my webpart and set it's value to the control id of the textbox in onfocus, then register a startupscript in OnLoad that focuses the control if the HiddenField has a value, but to no avail.

AJAX :: Control Toolkit Renaming ID's On GridView / TextBox?
How can i get other controls on my webpages (eg. Forms, Gridviews, TextBox, DDL's, etc...) to STOP rendering dynamically generated ID's from the AJAX Control Toolkit?

I have been able to successfully download and implement the AJAX Control Toolkit MENU within my .master page using an XML sitemap data source as well as changing the CSS properties to suit my layout and design. It now renders the page (in Source View) with the more robust HTML UL, LI tags, etc....

However when i add a new Gridview into the Content of a new page (using my master page), the View Source shows the Form ID & GridView ID has been dynamically changed which i'm sure is because of the AJAX Control Toolkit.

2 Examples:

1) FORM:

a) VWD Code View:

<form id="form1" runat="server">

b) However, page preview View Source changes to:

<form name="aspnetform" id="aspnetform" lang="en-au">


a) VWD Code View:

<asp:Gridview ID="GridView1" .......

b) However, page preview View Source changes to:

<table id="ct100_ContentPlaceHolder1_GridView1" ......>

Am i supposed to remove something from my AJAX Control Toolkit to stop other controls rendering new ID's? 

As the ID's and names change when the page is rendered i cannot CSS Stlye items, use code behind with my standard names. I get errors saying the Objects are NULL as they cannot be identified.

Web Forms :: Using Textbox.focus() Settting Textbox To Top Of Page
I have a dropdown for countries, when US is selected the page posts back with a drop down of US states.  I'm using dropdownname.focus() right now, but the dropdown focuses on the *bottom* of the screen.  So the postback and focus is working almost the way I want it to. I'd like the dropdown to appear at the top of the screen instead.  This is not to say that I want to return to the very top of the form, since my dropdown control is quite a way down on this long form, but I do want the dropdown to show up as the first visible field after postback.
