How to set control focus


In my C# application i have a treeview control and listview control, the
treeview is on the left side of the from and the listview is on the right.
When i click on an item in treeview i got code to force the listview to
selected the appropriate item and set focus on the listview, but the focus
never work it always stay on the treeview control.

Here my sample code

private void Treeview1_NodeC lick(..)
listview1.items[0].selected = true;
listview1.focus ();

Can anyone see what is wrong with my codes.... i really really want the
listview to have the focus when the user had clicked on any item in the
treeview. The reason because i have a lot of comment from my users said
that the listview should have the focus so that they can do other
performance without having to click on the listview first.

Any sample codes would be appreciative, looking forward hearing from you

Are you calling the base.treeviewNo deClick after the focus command?
Also, some users have dumb requests. You should ignore those requests
and stick with standards. Let the user drive the focus manually. You
can set the selection and the tab order to help them.

I am trying to set some checks on my tab pages. I have many sets of tab control pages with many controls on each page. I have got the code on the button to check each control to make sure it has an amount. It then sets the focus to that control if it does not have an amount. If I am on a different tab page and do a check, it will set the focus, but it will not take me to the tab page that has the control with the focus. What code do I...

Hi all, I have added browser control to a windows form. I am loading pages having multiple frames. I have noticed that the focus in a text is not maintained when the application is deactivated. I fixed this issue by finding the active element in dom and then setting its focus. If the active element is a frameelement then I get the document of the frameelement and then get the activeelement of that document and set the focus. This works...

Is it possible to change a control's focus at runtime? I'm sure you can.... I have a form with 2 textbox controls that cause postbacks. They are located in the middle of my form. When a postback occurs, no control has the focus. I would like it to be so that the control that causes the postback keeps the focus. Since I have 2 controls that potentally need to retain focus, using Javascript in this case is a PIA.

Just wondering if there is a way to give a control focus when the page loads, for example so the user could start typing in a text box before clicking on it? Thanks, -- Paul G Software engineer.

Another newbie question I'm afraid. When I use the .Focus() or .Select() methods to set the initial control that has focus on a form, try as I might I cannot get the control to visually indicate that it has the focus (e.g. a dotted outline around the caption of a RadioButton). The visible and enabled properties are set to true, and I know that the desired control has the focus (in this case one of two or more RadioButtons located in a...

http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/system.windows.forms.control.focus(VS.80).aspx this page says: "Focus is a low-level method intended primarily for custom control authors. Instead, application programmers should use the Select method or the ActiveControl property for child controls, or the Activate method for forms." I am trying to give a Numeric UpDown control focus. Only Focus() works. But this says to not use it.

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,...
