    Parameters

    Whether the element is to receive focus
    Remarks

    Use this method to move the focus to or remove the focus from the element.

    If you try to move the focus to the element by using this method, but the CanFocus property or the Enabled property is set to false, the focus will not move to the element.

    You can check whether the element already has the focus using the Focused property.

    For some elements, when the element receives the focus, if it can, the element can display a focus rectangle. Specify whether and how the focus rectangle appears by setting the DrawFocusRectangle property.

    Some controls display a cursor when they receive the focus. Specify the position of the cursor by setting the EditModeCursorPosition property, if supported.
