How to disable auto focus on Edit text ?

Hello guys,

When i launch my application, the first edit text is automatically selected and the keyboard appears:

I want to disable this.
I already unchecked "Focusable" in Behavior property but when i click on my textbox, i can't edit it.

Someone can help me ?

Best Regards, Michel.
Ps: Sorry for my bad English, i'm 17 years old and i'm French.

    Thank you very much, it's working fine !
    I used the method with the xml file.

    is it possible to do it programmatically instead of writing it in the axml file. is, then, any difference?
    Thank you.
