txtsrno = new TextBox();
            txtsrno.Name = "a1" + nn.ToString();
            txtsrno.Location = new Point(6, y);
            txtsrno.Size = new Size(59, 20);

            txtsrno.TabIndex = txt_amount.TabIndex + 1; // this is not working.

Your question and your code sample do not match - are you trying to set the focus or the TabIndex property?

Still no match with your code sample -- there is no "itemname". Not to worry, you got a general answer.

Once added the control to the panel1, try calling the Focus method.


Should help!

Correct, my 5.
I have a minor contribution to the answer, please see my solution.
A short note to the correct answer by Mario, just to close the topic: all controls are always created and added dynamically. If you think the Designer does something different, think again. The designer only helps you to create the code during design-time. What happens during runtime is exactly what you do in your application. Look at the C# code auto-generated by the Designer to see it.
