How to get focus for JTextField

Hi all,
I have a problem in getting focus for a textfield.
I have given requestFocus() and also getCaret().setVisible(true)
I am able to see the cursor but there is no focus for the textfield.
I have included TF.requestFocus() and TF.getCaret().setVisible(true) when I add that TF to a panel in the constructor.
What is the problem with my coding.
Thanks in advance.
