Setting Focus

I have an Edit control and a check box and the tab order is set in that order , i make a validation for the text entered in the edit box control and if the validation fails , i set the focus back to the edit control but the focus is not going to the edit control but to the check box since that is next to edit control in tab order , why is that ? and How can i set the focus back to the edit control ?

Here is what you should do. Use classwizard to map the EN_KILLFOCUS of the edit control. Assuming that its ID value is IDC_EDIT1, use code something like this:

void CMyDlg::OnKillfocusEdit1()
{
      // TODO: Add your control notification handler code here
      UpdateData(TRUE);
      if(m_edit!="Hello") //m_edit is a CString variable associated with the control
            GetDlgItem(IDC_EDIT1)->SetFocus();
}

hope this helps
thanks

Thanx for ur answer , actually i am not making use of any wizards in my project , but manually writing the cpp and header codes and inserting it into the project , I have trapped the kill focus as you have said and the validation is done there itself and i have also set back the focus in Kill focus as you have mentioned but even after doing all this the focus is set on the check box and not on the edit control .
