I am validating my Custom Admin form on the server side. In the model, on _beforeSave() I throw an exception if there is something wrong with a specific field.

Now, the point is that the error from the exception is catched in the save of the controller :

    try {
        } catch (Exception $e) {

$this->_redirect('*/*/edit', array('id' => $this->getRequest()->getParam('id')));

and will be displayed on the top of the page (addError), how can I put some kind of focus on the field that should be fixed? Anything that can be done without using Javascript?
