Parameters

request
Type: System.Windows.Input.TraversalRequest

A traversal request, which contains a property that indicates either a mode to traverse in existing tab order, or a direction to move visually.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the requested traversal was performed; otherwise, false.
