AcceptFocus property

From Xojo Documentation

Property (As Boolean )
a<See Below>.AcceptFocus = newBooleanValue
BooleanValue = a<See Below>.AcceptFocus

Supported for all project types and targets.

If True, the control will be included in the Tab order and can accept the focus. The GotFocus and LostFocus events are called at the appropriate times.


Some controls automatically accept focus, e.g. text fields or lists, so they do not have AcceptFocus property.

Not all controls can accept focus on every platform. More information is available on GotFocus and LostFocus events.
