ElementHost.Select Method (Boolean, Boolean)

Activates the hosted element.

Namespace: System.Windows.Forms.Integration
Assembly: WindowsFormsIntegration (in windowsformsintegration.dll)

protected override void Select (
	bool directed,
	bool forward
protected void Select (
	boolean directed, 
	boolean forward
protected override function Select (
	directed : boolean, 
	forward : boolean
Not applicable.



true to specify the direction of the control to select; otherwise, false.


true to move forward in the tab order; false to move backward in the tab order.

The Select method activates the hosted element. If more than one hosted element exists, either the first or last element is activated, depending on the directed and forward parameters.

Repeated calls to the Select method do not traverse the hosted elements. To select subsequent elements, call the MoveFocus method on the HostContainer property.

This implementation forwards tab keys from Windows Forms to Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF).
