ListViewItem.Focused Property

Gets or sets a value indicating whether the item has focus within the ListView control.

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

public bool Focused { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the item has focus; otherwise, false.

Because a ListView control does not have directly editable areas—only items contained in the ListView can be edited—the text of an item in the ListView will display the focus reticle when the ListView has focus. Typically, the last selected item in the ListView control is the item with focus. Although an item may display the focus reticle, it might not actually be a selected item in the ListView. You can use the Focused property to determine if the item is currently the focused item in the ListView control that contains it. If the ListViewItem is not associated with a ListView control, this property will return false.

The ListView control provides the FocusedItem property to allow you to determine which ListViewItem in the ListView has the focus.
