Hopefully an easy question.. I would normally use me.textbox1.focus() to set focus to a textbox control when first opening a form so that the user does not have to click into the box to begin typing.. When I put my controls onto a RadTabStrip, and at the very last line of the form_load event I try to set focus to a control in this way, it does not work.. After the form is loaded I can get the focus to work.. For example, on button click.. But for whatever reason it refuses to work on form_load for all forms in my project.. What am I doing wrong?

Hi joseph_korn,

Have you tried the following:

this
.radTextBox1.Select();

I've tested it and it works in my application. Please write me back with more details if this does not help.
