When Web pages are posted back to the server, by default the user is returned to the top of the page. On long Web pages, this means that after a postback the user might have to scroll back to the most recent position on the page.

When the MaintainScrollPositionOnPostback property is set to true, the user is instead returned to the most recent position on the page.

You set the MaintainScrollPositionOnPostback property in the @ Page directive.
