A focus scope is a container element that keeps track of the FocusManager.FocusedElement within its scope. By default, the Window class is a focus scope as are the Menu, ContextMenu, and ToolBar classes. An element which is a focus scope has IsFocusScope set to true.

For more information on focus, keyboard focus, and logical focus, see the Input Overview.

The following example makes a StackPanel a focus scope.

<StackPanel Name="focusScope1" 
            FocusManager.IsFocusScope="True"
            Height="200" Width="200">
  <Button Name="button1" Height="50" Width="50"/>
  <Button Name="button2" Height="50" Width="50"/>
</StackPanel>
