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

Only a single UI element at a time can have focus.

A control can lose focus when another control gets focus, the application view changes, the user switches applications, or the user interacts with the system such that the application is no longer in the foreground.
