Edit_TakeFocus macro

[Intended for internal use; not recommended for use in applications. This macro may not be supported in future versions of Windows.]

Forces a single-line edit control to receive keyboard focus. You can use this macro or send the EM_TAKEFOCUS message explicitly.

Syntax

void Edit_TakeFocus(
   hwndCtl
);

Parameters

hwndCtl

Type: HWND

A handle to the edit control.

Return Value

None

Remarks

The EM_TAKEFOCUS message is ignored if the edit control is not a single-line edit control.

If the edit control previously received an EM_NOSETFOCUS message, the edit control will appear to have the focus without actually having it; otherwise, the edit control will receive focus.

Requirements

   
Minimum supported client Windows Vista [desktop apps only]
Minimum supported server Windows Server 2008 [desktop apps only]
