textbox control focus and input

Hello everybody,
I Have a piece of code for a Pocket PC that has a
disabled and hidden textbox control at startup. It is
enabled and set visible programatically . The cursor is
captured calling the focus method.
The problem is: the focus is lost almost inmediately. I
can't type in anything.

See the code below.

Any ideas?

Thank you,

Carlos Lozano

The code is like this:

SetVisible(bool toggle)
if (toggle)
bool lfocus = false;
tName.Enabled = true;
tName.Visible = true;
tName.Show(); // The control is shown at this point
lfocus = tName.Focus();
/* I found lfocus is true when debugging. Meaning
it got the focus, but seems it lost focus
tName.Visible = false;
tName.Enabled = false;
tName.Hide(); // The control is hidden again

I have an application that will use barcode scanners to enter an ID to search a database. The main form uses a tab page. I would like people to go to the tab for checking in and just read the barcode without having to hit enter. I also want to keep the number hidden, so I don't want it entered into a visible textbox. TabPages don't have a keypress event, so I'm not sure how to handle this. Thanks...

WINDOWS FORMS I've a form that has a textbox that allows the user to enter a string. On the LostFocus event, the textbox formats the string into a preferred format. However, if the user presses the "Save" button while the textbox has the focus, the LostFocus code doesn't run at the right time, so that the "Save" function is dealing with an incorrectly formatted string and the whole caboodle goes splat.
