Maintain scroll position in ASP.Net

I am trying to convert the VB.Net code example povided by
http://authors.aspalliance.com/JimRo...ScrollPos.aspx
into C# (ASP.Net)without success. No errors are thrown in the VB code
provided on the website.
Once I have this example running correctly, I will need to use the
concept in a more complex project. The code I am using involves an
webform and an htc file.

The code for ScrollPos.htc (which is located in a folder within the
project called 'Includes'):

-----------------------------------------------------------------
<PUBLIC:ATTACH EVENT=ondocumentready ONEVENT="elementLoad()" />
<PUBLIC:PROPERTY NAME="scrollPos" />
<PUBLIC:PROPERTY NAME="persistID" />

// DHTML behavior for scrollable DIV
// (or other scrollable element)
//
// allows element to maintain scroll position within
// the DIV across postbacks.

<script language="javascript">
function elementLoad() {
element.scrollTop = scrollPos;
element.attachEvent("onscroll", saveScroll);
}

function saveScroll() {
element.document.all[persistID].value =
event.srcElement.scrollTop;
}
</script>

---------------------------------

The HTML code for the ASP file is:

<%@ Page language="c#" Codebehind="MaintainScrollDemo.aspx.cs"
AutoEventWireup="false" Inherits="TestC.MaintainScrollDemo" %>
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">

}
#region Web Form Designer generated code

Hopefully someone is able to point a frustrated C# ASP.Net newbie in
the right direction.

Thanks in anticipation

Hi Jon
Thanks for your reply.
The compiler generated message displayed when I try to run the app is as
below:

----------------------------------------

Compiler Error Message: CS1026: ) expected

Source Error:
Line 37: <blockquote style="TEXT-ALIGN: center">
Line 38: <% string scrollPosURL = "../Includes/ScrollPos.htc"; %>
Line 39: <DIV persistID="<% saveScrollPos.UniqueID; %>"
scrollPos="<%= saveScrollPos.value; %>" style ="BEHAVIOR: url(<%=
ResolveURL(scrollPosURL);%>);OVERFLOW: auto;WIDTH: 400px;HEIGHT: 120px"

Line 40: <input id="saveScrollPos" type="hidden"
name="saveScrollPos" runat="server">
Line 41: <asp:datagrid id="dgTwo" width="100%" BorderWidth="1px"
GridLines="Vertical" CellPadding="4" BackColor="White"

--------------------------------

I have played around with the HTML syntax as best as I can but the
'hint' - expected ')' has not helped me so far. Drats!

I have also set Alerts in the htc file (code as per Google posting). So
I know when that file is hit.

Possibly there is something in required in the C# code behind that is
not required in the VB.Net example.

Thanks for your time.

Cheers

Grant
