Hi all,

I am trying to set the initial focus on a certain Textbox within my UserControl, by doing the following:
FocusManager.FocusedElement="{Binding ElementName=txtBarCode}"

A. It sets the focus, but the cursor does not flicker? Only when I click on the Textbox, does it start flickering?
B. Secondly, how can I keep the focus on the Textbox.

Many thanks in advance!
Kind regards

To set logical focus to an input control
FocusManager.SetFocusedElement(this, textboxJack);  


Use this code:

private void Button_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
    textBox.SelectionStart = textName.Text.Length;
