Return Values

Nonzero indicates success. Zero indicates failure. To get extended error information, call GetLastError.


Because DrawFocusRect is an XOR function, calling it a second time with the same rectangle removes the rectangle from the screen.

This function draws a rectangle that cannot be scrolled. To scroll an area containing a rectangle drawn by this function, call DrawFocusRect to remove the rectangle from the screen, scroll the area, and then call DrawFocusRect again to draw the rectangle in the new position.
