UIElementPreviewGotKeyboardFocus Event

Occurs when the keyboard is focused on this element.

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

public event KeyboardFocusChangedEventHandler PreviewGotKeyboardFocus
event KeyboardFocusChangedEventHandler^ PreviewGotKeyboardFocus {
	virtual void add(KeyboardFocusChangedEventHandler^ value) sealed;
	virtual void remove(KeyboardFocusChangedEventHandler^ value) sealed;
abstract PreviewGotKeyboardFocus : IEvent<KeyboardFocusChangedEventHandler,
override PreviewGotKeyboardFocus : IEvent<KeyboardFocusChangedEventHandler,
Public Event PreviewGotKeyboardFocus As KeyboardFocusChangedEventHandler

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

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