Setting Focus to a control

I ran into a little strange situation with the site when setting focus to a control.
I have setup the tab index on my page. All works well until I use the dropdown list in the middle of the page.
Once I make a selection, it set focus to the address bar of the browser.

I created an onchange event for the dropdown list to set focus to the next control, txtText.setfocus(),and it works but the webpage shifts to the left. It shifts almost the entire width of the left content pane, (it is hidden). The right side looks like it is trying to show the right content pane, which is empty, and it is all white space.

Any thoughts?

Re: Seting Focus to a control

 I reread my post and don't want to confuse anyone.
The onchange event is the wrong terminology for this. The actual code is below.

code behind--

protected void RentalMake_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)

{

        txtRentalModel.Focus();

}

HTML---

<asp:DropDownList ID="ddlRentalMake" TabIndex="6" runat="server" AutoPostBack = "true" OnSelectedIndexChanged="RentalMake_SelectedIndexChanged"><asp:ListItem ></asp:DropDownList>

Re: Seting Focus to a control

Nevermind!
This is a debugging issue within VS.
I deployed the page to the live site and it works as intended.
