Link Label Focus Issue

I have an issue in which a link label on a windows form does not draw the
focus rectangle if you programmaticall y force it to have focus via the
Control.Focus() method.

To duplicate, create a new windows app, place a button and a link label on
the form. In the button click event, place the following code,
this.linkLabel1 .Focus(). Run the app and press tab between the two controls
and you notice that the link label has the focus rectangle, but if you put
focus on the button and click the button, the focus rectangle is not drawn
on the link label even though it has focus.

I've tried several methods to force the drawing of the rectangle, including
the WM_SETFOCUS and VK_TAB api's without luck.

Any ideas on how to force the drawing of the focus rectangle? (I'm trying
to avoid using the drawrect myself).


Thanks in Advance!

On my page, I want to set the focus to the top of the page (where I have a message in a label) after a button is clicked. How can I use javascript on the server side to set the focus either to a label OR a hidden input field? I do not have any textboxes on the page. The reason I need this is because I have a datagrid with potentially a LOT of records in it. The user can change these records, and click a Save button at the bottom of my...

Hello, I am used to using the label tag with check boxes and radio buttons in html forms. This allows me to click on the text of the label to activate/deactivate the check box / button, rather than having to click on the (possibly small) box or button. I recently tried to assign a label to a select "drop down list", but found that when I clicked on the label text to bring it into focus, the select box was reset to the first entry. ...

I am trying to create a hypertext link (text within an anchor) so that if the onlly thing the user does is to press Enter, the link will take affect and navigate properly. The link is not the first "object" on the page. Tabbing to the hypertext certainly works. Any ideas? Rich Blackburn

I have created a LABEL, and placed it on top of a button. When I press the button, the label disappears under the button. Is there a way to get the LABEL to stay on top of the button, or reappear after the button is clicked ? I need the Label to remain an object seperate from the button. Greg
