why don't you just use the TAB key ?

Technically the Focus will move to the TButton during the OnClick
Wm_NextDlgCtl does the same as tab

if you look at the taborder of the components, you'll find the TEdit1 is the next in the TabOrder after the TButton1

you need a button which doesn't get the focus on click.
> Use a TSpeedButton instead of the TButton
Then it should work

procedure TForm3.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  Perform(WM_NextDlgCtl, 0, 0);
end;

procedure TForm3.SpeedButton1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  Perform(WM_NextDlgCtl, 0, 0);
end;

if your button is on that same form, you don't need to roundtrip via the Screen.ActiveForm
