Property Value

Boolean value: true if user can select items; false otherwise

Set the Selectable property to specify whether users can interact with the control. For example, whether they can push a button or select an item.

This property is available at run time only.

Contrast this property with the CanFocus property and the Enabled property. Use the CanFocus property to specify whether a control can receive the focus. Use the Enabled property to specify whether the control looks grayed and users can interact with it.
