This should be a simple question.  I have a form with edit boxes.  When Ok is clicked.  I check the validity of the data in the boxes and if there is a problem, I set the focus to the problem box.  How do I have the box act like it has been double clicked?  (highlighted and ready to have the data replaced when typing begins)
