ASP.Net keep Scroll Position On every Postback or Refresh

When a page is posted to the server the scroll position of the page resets, and  this causes the user  to scroll back to the part where the user was working on. ASP.NET 2 has introduced a property called MaintainScrollPositionOnPostback that will tackle this problem for you most of the times.

The issue get rather tricky when we place UpdatePanels in the page and scroll bars resets on each request. I have seen lot of users having difficulties resolving this issue and recently came across the following post that will provide you the desired workaround.

It seems that after a partial postback occured from an update panel jquery events does not work as expected. This can be solved by usin pageLoad() instead of $(document).ready() as shown in the following link http://encosia.com/2009/03/25/document-ready-and-pageload-are-not-the-same/

format Jquery autocomplete result set

If you want to customize the appearance of the jQuery autocomplete suggestion result set, you have to replace the _renderItem function with your own creation that produces the desired result. The function definition will be as follows.

 $(function () {

 $.ui.autocomplete.prototype._renderItem = function (ul, item) {
            item.label = item.label.replace(new RegExp("(?![^&;]+;)(?!<[^<>]*)(" + $.ui.autocomplete.escapeRegex(this.term) + ")(?![^<>]*>)(?![^&;]+;)", "gi"), "$1");
            return $("
  • ")
                        .data("item.autocomplete", item)
                        .append("" + item.label + "")
                        .appendTo(ul);
            };

    //attach your autocomplete to the textbox. See my previous post http://ssenarath.blogspot.com/2014/06/jquery-autocomplete-suggest-size-is.html
    $("#ContentPlaceHolder1_txtDesignation").autocomplete({
     ...
    });

    });
