scrollIntoView called on postback

P: n/a

I'm working on an ASP.NET 2 application, with framework 2.0 beta. I have a
classic form, with a listbox. This field is in autopostback=true. When I
change the selected value, the page is reloaded, and the scrollIntoView
function is called at reload. It is called in the Webform_Autofocus(focusId)
function, whose call is included by ASP.NET at page generation. Here is the
code of this function:
function WebForm_AutoFocus(focusId) {
var targetControl;
if (__nonMSDOMBrowser) {
targetControl = document.getElementById(focusId);
else {
targetControl = document.all[focusId];
var focused = targetControl;
if (targetControl != null && (!WebForm_CanFocus(targetControl)) ) {
focused = WebForm_FindFirstFocusableChild(targetControl);
if (focused != null) {
try {
if (window.__smartNav != null) { =;
catch (e) {

The problem is that my form is inside an iframe. And the parent page is
scrolled, in order to put the field in the middle of the window.

Is there any way to disable the call to scrollIntoView after a postback?

Any help will be greatly appreciated !
