Logical focus might differ from keyboard focus if an application has multiple focus divisions, such as between menu contents and the remainder of the application. In this scenario, keyboard focus can only be on one element of the application UI, however, certain elements in other focus divisions might still retain logical focus. For more information on logical focus, see Input Overview and Focus Overview.

The following example creates a style that makes a Paragraph focusable by default and gives it a visual behavior when it receives focus.

<Style x:Key="FocusableParagraph" TargetType="{x:Type Paragraph}">
  <Setter Property="Focusable" Value="true"/>
  <Style.Triggers>
    <Trigger Property="IsFocused" Value="True">
      <Setter Property = "Background" Value="{StaticResource BlueGreenBrush}"/>
    </Trigger>
  </Style.Triggers>
</Style>
