Textbox focus problems


A

Ayende Rahien

I've a form that contains a panel that contains a text box, but I can't
get the default focus to be on the text box.
I want to open this form and start typing, but it doesn't work.
I tried settting the tab index, and I tryed the textbox.Select() &
textbox.Focus() on the form's Load event, but it didn't work.
Anyone knows why?
What happens is that the focus is just one tab away from it, and it's
driving me nuts.

We could be going back and forth on this to nail down the issue ... best attach pertinent code.

Sorry, I managed to find that the problem is somewhere in WeifenLuo
DockPanel.
Apperantly the DockPane is stealing the focus, but I can't quite see
/how/ it does it. Since it do it only in a very spesific way. And I
can't seem to repreduce it with less code.
