ItemAutomationPeer.SetFocusCore Method

Microsoft Silverlight will reach end of support after October 2021. Learn more.

Sets the keyboard input focus on the item element that is associated with this FrameworkElementAutomationPeer. This method is called by SetFocus.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Automation.Peers
Assembly:  System.Windows (in System.Windows.dll)


Protected Overrides Sub SetFocusCore
protected override void SetFocusCore()


If the item is a UIElement with its own peer as reported by Owner, then that UIElement receives focus. If there is on owner, but there is a container peer (which could be ItemsControlAutomationPeer, ListBoxAutomationPeer, or another class) then the container peer receives focus. Finally, if there is no container peer, then this method does nothing.
