ContentElement.MoveFocus Method

Attempts to move focus from this element to another element. The direction to move focus is specified by a guidance direction, which is interpreted within the organization of the visual parent for this element.

Namespace:  System.Windows
Assembly:  PresentationCore (in PresentationCore.dll)

public virtual bool MoveFocus(
	TraversalRequest request
)

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.

Make sure you check the return value of this method. A return value of false might be returned if the traversal runs into a tab stop that is defined by a control's composition, and the traversal request did not request to wrap.
