To set the focus on a control you need to make sure that the control you want to be focused is loaded before setting the focus on it. Here is a sample method that puts the focus on the passed focusControl:
RoutedEventHandler loadedEventHandler =
focusControl.Loaded -= loadedEventHandler;
focusControl.Loaded += loadedEventHandler;
