Hi,
As usual i wish to set my focus to first field of the form.
But by default it goes to the last component added.
i tried the method:
requestDefaultFocus()
requestFocus()
grabFocus()
but none of them is working when first time form is created.
plz suggest the way.

as far as I know you have to call this method after the container is visible.

Hi,
get first component of the panel and call seFocus(true) on it.
 
I will suppress my every urge. But not this shameless plug:
