focus requests will only work after the component is 'realized' - packed or visible
a textfield in a comboBox is an editorComponent - you need to access that
if it's in a tabbedPane, focus (since about 1.4) has been a problem (not sure if fixed in recent versions)

easiest way for a solution is for you to post a sample program of your code - just enough code to compile and demonstrate the problem

This is following code



public class TestcmbBx {
.....
......

CmbBx = new javax.swing.JComboBox();

CmbBx.setEditable(true);
CmbBx.setFont(new java.awt.Font("Arial", 0, 12));
CmbBx.setName("departNameCmbBx");
Setup_mainPanel.add(departNameCmbBx, new org.netbeans.lib.awtextra.AbsoluteConstraints(150, 40, 320, -1));


in constructor i'm calling like

public TestCmbBx() {

....
.....
cmbBx.requestDefaultFocus();
cmbBx.requestFocus(true);

}
...
....
(+ Generate code) private javax.swing.JComboBox CmbBx;

}

Try calling cmbBx.requestFocusInWindow by bundling it inside SwingUtilities.invokeLater()

I can't compile the code, so I can offer no further help.
