Form Input Focus

Ok here's my situation...

Got an MDI application with a panel to my right that has a tree view
for the project stuff, etc.

Now if I select an item in the tree view, the tree view gains input
focus. After this happens, my MDI children no longer are able to
obtain keyboard focus and therefore no longer receive keyboard
commands. Needless to say, that's a bad thing. :)

I've tried overriding OnClick() and adding a call to this.Focus(), but
no luck....

So what do I do?? The MDI windows themselves contain no controls as
the views are rendered directly onto the form using DirectX.

Any help is greatly appreciated,

Stephan

So, if you click in the TreeView, you want to set the focus back to the
MDI window, is that what you want? If so, try setting the focus to the
MDI window in the MouseUp event handler of the TreeView. If that isn't
your problem, can you determine what form/control has focus?

Thanks for the input..I ended up solving the problem by just making a
usercontrol as a view and using that with a fill dock to render onto.
That did the trick :) Can set focus to the view control now and
everything works :)

Thanks,

Stephan

I've been playing with this form validation method for a while and have tried an array of things but haven't had any luck with a couple items. 1. The validateForm() function doesn't detect when the Min price is greater than the maximum price. 2. The validateForm() function doesn't call isNumber() on the minBaths, maxBaths, minBeds, or maxBeds. 3. Despite errors in input and the validateForm() function returning false, the form is still...

I want to be able to test if my app's form has focus, (ie: not in background, behind other windows). How can I do this? I tried the Me.Focused, but that doesn't work. I think it's because a control within the form actually has focus, so the Me.Focused would return false. Thanks!

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
