You can try this:
((dxLayoutControl1ItemX as TdxLayoutItem).Control as TWinControl).SetFocus

jimmy I use Group and your example works on Items. I asked how to focus a tabbed GROUP not an item. the group object doesnt have a "Control" property.

Do you want to set focus to a specific control in a tabbed group or to the tabbed group itself???

i found a workaround.
all you have to do is:

1) hide all groups except the one you want to focus

dxLayoutGroup2.Visible := false;
dxLayoutGroup3.Visible := false;

2) and then set back to visible


dxLayoutGroup2.Visible := true;
dxLayoutGroup3.Visible := true;


this will give the focus to the 1st group dxLayoutGroup1
