Control.Focused Property


Gets a value indicating whether the control has input focus.

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

public virtual bool Focused { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if the control has focus; otherwise, false.

Notes to Inheritors:

When overriding the Focused property in a derived class, use the base class's Focused property to extend the base implementation. Otherwise, you must provide all the implementation.

The following code example disables a MenuItem if a TextBox does not have focus. This example requires that you have a Form with a TextBox named textBox1 and two MenuItem objects named menuItemEdit and menuItemEditInsertCustomerInfo.

private void menuItemEdit_Popup(object sender, EventArgs e)
   // Disable the menu item if the text box does not have focus.
   this.menuItemEditInsertCustomerInfo.Enabled = this.textBox1.Focused;
