problem when opening a form

Hi,
I can't begin to understand this one. I have a form with a tabcontrol.
When I first enter one of the pages (whether by tabbing or opening the form),
I say to focus on a button. It does focus on that button but you wouldn't
know it by looking at it (the dotted rectangle isn't there). I noticed that
when the Tab key was pressed, the focused button will highlight, so when
opening the form, I focused on the button next to the one I want focused and
did a SendKeys.Send Tab. This works if the current tab page is the one in
focus (I have another screen on that same tabpage where I can press an Exit
button to return to the original screen), but it refuses to work when I tab
into the page from another or open the form. I'm completely out of ideas
around this problem. Anyone know what I could do?
Thanks so much!!!
Mel

For some reason, when I click the X to close my MDI parent form, the action appears to be re-directed to one of the MDI child forms, and the parent remains open.
