FarPoint.Win Assembly > FarPoint.Win Namespace > ElementStyle Class : CanFocus Property
Gets or sets whether the object can receive focus.
Public Overridable Property CanFocus As Boolean
Dim instance As ElementStyle
Dim value As Boolean
instance.CanFocus = value
value = instance.CanFocus
public virtual bool CanFocus {get; set;}

Property Value

Boolean value: true if element can receive focus; false otherwise

Use this property to specify whether an element can receive the focus.

If you do not want the control to receive focus nor for the user to interact with it, set the Enabled property to false.

For some objects, when the control receives the focus, if it can, the object can display a focus rectangle. Specify whether and how the focus rectangle appears by setting the DrawFocusRectangle property.

Some objects display a cursor when they receive the focus. For those objects, specify the position of the cursor by setting the EditModeCursorPosition property.

Contrast this property with the Enabled property and the Selectable property. Use the Enabled property to specify whether the object looks grayed and users can interact with it. Use the Selectable property to specify whether users can interact with the object, such as pressing a button.
