x image on a pop up click should focus on textbox but not working as expected

I have a pop up that is generated through gwt code. Upon user click(image x btn), the focus should be set to the textbox. But what I have here is not working as expected. What it does is that It focuses on the textbox but does not close the pop up. I need it to close the pop up first ebfore focuses the textbox. I tried removing the class of the div one by one but it seems that it would not remove the"modal" feature or the page does not respond to any mouse or keyboard click any more. The code below only works as expected if there is an alert("test") before the $('#globalSearchTextBox').focus(); but whenever I remove it, it fails again. It seems that the focus on the "x" image is lost and immediately goes to the globalSearchTextBox even before the pop up is clicked that is why it does not close it and thus still on modal mode. I also tried doing it in the .java code on the xit handler of the image click but still won't work.

I ran out of ideas on how to do this correctly, not a jquery fan too. :( pls help. thanks.

here is my code:

$('#imgExitId').live('keydown', function(e) { 
      var keyCode = e.keyCode || e.which; 

      if (keyCode == 9) { 
        //alert("tab press")

      if (keyCode == 13) { 
//if alert("test") is added, hen it works 



I tried hundreds of solution like blur, mouseleave, while, set timeout(i tried delaying the focus coz I thought it was just fast). I even tried removing .css of the pop up panel.

here is the html of the pop up(generated through gwt code):

    <div class="gwt-PopupPanelGlass" style="position: absolute; left: 0px; top: 0px; display: block; width: 1758px; height: 1001px;"></div>
