FrameworkElement::MoveFocus Method (TraversalRequest^)

 

Moves the keyboard focus away from this element and to another element in a provided traversal direction.

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

public:
virtual bool MoveFocus(
	TraversalRequest^ request
) override sealed

Parameters

request
Type: System.Windows.Input::TraversalRequest^

The direction that focus is to be moved, as a value of the enumeration.

Return Value

Type: System::Boolean

Returns true if focus is moved successfully; false if the target element in direction as specified does not exist or could not be keyboard focused.

This implementation overrides UIElement::MoveFocus and seals the method.

The following example implements a handler that handles several possible button inputs. Each button represents a possible FocusNavigationDirection. The handler tracks the element with current keyboard focus, and calls MoveFocus on that element, by specifying the appropriate FocusNavigationDirection as initialization for the TraversalRequest type parameter provided.
