Property Value

true if the client position should be maintained; otherwise, false.



When Web pages are posted back to the server, the user is returned to the top of the page. On long Web pages, this means that the user has to scroll the page back to the last position on the page.

When the MaintainScrollPositionOnPostBack property is set to true, the user is instead returned to the last position on the page.

You set the MaintainScrollPositionOnPostBack property in the @ Page directive.
