C# 1.1 Windows Control LostFocus GotFocus question

Hi,

In my .Net 1.1 C# windows form Form1 I have nothing but 2 TextBox controls
on the Form1, the T1 and T2.
I would like to test the sequence of the GotFocus LostFocus things, so I
have the following code on the Form1.

this.T1.LostFoc us +=new EventHandler(T1 _LostFocus);
this.T1 .GotFocus +=new EventHandler(T1 _GotFocus);
this.T2 .LostFocus +=new EventHandler(T2 _LostFocus);
this.T2 .GotFocus += new EventHandler(T2 _GotFocus);

protected void T1_LostFocus(ob ject sender, EventArgs e)
{
MessageBox.Show ("T1_LostFocus" );
}

protected void T1_GotFocus(obj ect sender, EventArgs e)
{
MessageBox.Show ("T1_GotFocus") ;
}

protected void T2_LostFocus(ob ject sender, EventArgs e)
{
MessageBox.Show ("T2_LostFocus" );
}

protected void T2_GotFocus(obj ect sender, EventArgs e)
{
MessageBox.Show ("T2_GotFocus") ;
}

There you go! When I run the Form1, the MessageBox just keep popping out
like an infinitive loop!
I am wondering why that happens! Am I missing anything in testing the
LostFocus GotFocus testing?
Thanks for help.

Every time your MessageBox pops up, it causes the loss of focus for
whatever window and control has focus at the time. Which causes the
MessageBox to pop up again. Etc.

It was suggested to you, in a different thread, that you use the debug
console output to monitor focus changes. IMHO, that was the correct
suggestion, and doing so would avoid having the monitoring itself
interfere with the behavior you're monitoring.

So do that instead.

Since you have only 2 controls on your form, when one loses focus the other
receives it. This implies that you see the lost focus pop up box for one
control and once you click ok, you see the get focus of the other control.
This sequence repeats over and over. You can also use debug statements to
debug your code and avoid having to click any buttons on pop up windows.

Hi I have created a User Control Containing a Panel and Rich Text Box. The Panel contains some other controls used for formatting the Text entered in the Rich Text Box.
