UIElement.GotKeyboardFocus Event


Occurs when the keyboard is focused on this element.

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

public event KeyboardFocusChangedEventHandler GotKeyboardFocus

IsKeyboardFocusedChanged is a similar event that tracks status changes in a property that maintains the focus state for an element; the GotKeyboardFocus event is raised in many of the same circumstances.

Because this event uses bubbling routing, the element that has focus might be a child element instead of the element where the event handler is actually attached. Check the Source in the event data to determine the actual element that has focus.

This event creates an alias for the Keyboard.GotKeyboardFocus attached event for this class so that GotKeyboardFocus is part of the class members list when UIElement is inherited as a base element. Event handlers that are attached to the GotKeyboardFocus event are attached to the underlying Keyboard.GotKeyboardFocus attached event and receive the same event data instance.
