FocusManager.GettingFocus FocusManager.GettingFocus FocusManager.GettingFocus FocusManager.GettingFocus Event


Occurs before an element actually receives focus. This event is raised synchronously to ensure focus isn't moved while the event is bubbling.

public : event EventHandler<GettingFocusEventArgs> GettingFocus
// Register
event_token GettingFocus(EventHandler<GettingFocusEventArgs> const& handler) const;

// Revoke with event_token
void GettingFocus(event_token const& cookie) const;

// Revoke with event_revoker
GettingFocus_revoker GettingFocus(auto_revoke_t, EventHandler<GettingFocusEventArgs> const& handler) const;
public event EventHandler<GettingFocusEventArgs> GettingFocus
Public Event GettingFocus As EventHandler (Of GettingFocusEventArgs)


We recommend using the UIElement focus routed events instead of FocusManager events whenever possible.

FocusNavigationDirection.Previous and FocusNavigationDirection.Next cannot be used with FindNextElementOptions. Only FocusNavigationDirection.Up, FocusNavigationDirection.Down, FocusNavigationDirection.Left, or FocusNavigationDirection.Right are valid.

UIElement focus events bubble up to the FocusManager in the following order:

  1. UIElement.LosingFocus /FocusManager.LosingFocus
  2. UIElement.GettingFocus /FocusManager.GettingFocus
  3. UIElement.LostFocus routed event is raised by the element that lost focus and the event bubbles up
  4. FocusManager.LostFocus is raised (even if the routed event is marked handled)
  5. UIElement.GotFocus routed event is raised by the element that received focus and the event bubbles up
  6. FocusManager.GotFocus is raised (even if the routed event is marked handled)
