I am using a Telerik RadGridView object but I am guessing this should be very similar to a GridView in Visual Studio. The issue I am having is that I have a backdrop which loads the grid onto it. Basically a form within a form. What is happening is when I pull up the gridview, I have to click on the gridview in order to start scrolling with the mouse wheel. Would anybody know of a simple way to set the focus of the grid so that I can start scrolling with the mouse wheel immediately? I have tried setting radgridview.focus(); at the end of the load event but that won't work for some reason.
