TextBox renders as <input type=text ...>. This element has a method
select(). Setup a client-side onfocus event like this (c# syntax):

myTextBox.Attributes["onfocus"]="this.selected()";

I have done that , but it is no effect
My code is:

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
TextBox3.Attributes["onfocus"] = "this.selected()";
}

protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
TextBox3.Focus();
}

But after I click Button1, the text in TextBox3 is not selected.

sorry, should be

TextBox3.Attributes["onfocus"] = "this.select()";

What is Focus()? Are you talking about a web form or a windows form? Or is
it something new in asp.net 2.0?

In asp.net 1.1 you can set focus on a control only on client side.
