    Default JTextPane focus problem

    Hi.. I'm really confused why I can't make my JTextPane focused

    I have a jframe with JTabbedPane inside it, inside the JTabbedPane is a JPanel, inside the JPanel is JTextPane included with JScrollpane.

    I want to make the JTextPane focused when the window opened, now it focused on the JTabbedPane.

    I've tried these

    	TextPane.setFocusable(true);
            TextPane.requestFocusInWindow();
            TextPane.setFocusCycleRoot(true);
            TextPane.setFocusTraversalPolicyProvider(true);
            TextPane.grabFocus();
            TextPane.setCaretPosition(0);
            TextPane.setText("test");

    I even tried to turn off the focusable of JTabbedPane to false.
    Still I can't make the JTextPane focused.
    I also already tried to move the code above before the JFrame.setvisibile(true)

    Anyone can help?

    Try calling requestFocus() on your JTextArea. This should be called after you call pack() on your JFrame.

    I've tried that too, isn't requestFocusInWindow() is more recommended than requestFocus()? That's what I read at the javadoc

    Note that the use of this method is discouraged because its behavior is platform dependent. Instead we recommend the use of requestFocusInWindow().
