UICuesEventArgs.ShowFocus Property

Gets a value indicating whether focus rectangles are shown after the change.

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

public bool ShowFocus { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if focus rectangles are shown after the change; otherwise, false.

The following code example demonstrates the use of this member. In the example, an event handler reports on the occurrence of the Control.ChangeUICues event. This report helps you to learn when the event occurs and can assist you in debugging. To report on multiple events or on events that occur frequently, consider replacing MessageBox.Show with Console.WriteLine or appending the message to a multiline TextBox.

To run the example code, paste it into a project that contains an instance of a type that inherits from Control, such as a Button or ComboBox. Then name the instance Control1 and ensure that the event handler is associated with the Control.ChangeUICues event.

private void Control1_ChangeUICues(Object sender, UICuesEventArgs e) {

System.Text.StringBuilder messageBoxCS = new System.Text.StringBuilder();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "ShowFocus", e.ShowFocus );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "ShowKeyboard", e.ShowKeyboard );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "ChangeFocus", e.ChangeFocus );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "ChangeKeyboard", e.ChangeKeyboard );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Changed", e.Changed );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
MessageBox.Show(messageBoxCS.ToString(), "ChangeUICues Event" );
}
