Bit stupid solution, but it works :-)

Place a button somewhere on your form where it can't be seen:

FocusButton1.Left :=-1000;
FocusButton1.Top :=-1000;

And if you want to loose the focus of any button call:
FocusButton1.SetFocus

This will focus the FocusButton1 (as it's still visible, you won't get an error)...

Good luck!

and also try to find the tabstop property of the button in the object inspector and set that to false
I mean
button1.tabstop:=false;

use the following:

  Windows.SetFocus(0);

It removes the focus from the control but does not set the focus to any other control in the window.

or set the Focus in any other control (in the OnClick event of the button or whenever you want the focus to go away from the button)

Edit1.SetFocus;
