hi, I found that at JGuru: "The requestFocus() method will only work when the component is visible so ensure that your window/applet is visible and that your component has been added to it. Then call the requestFocus() method on the component to switch the focus." i've seen in the API a method setInitialFocus(). Maybe that will work?! chantal

Hi Selvas, You have 2 choices: 1. Immediately after using frame.setVisible( true ) place your requestFocus call:
or 2. Register your component to listener for itself as a ComponentListener. Override the componentShown method and request the focus there:
