WebViewControl.GotFocus Event


Informs your app when the WebViewControl receives focus (due to the user clicking inside/outside the WebViewControl). Use in combination with the LostFocus event and programmatic focus changes using the WebViewControl.MoveFocus method.

// Register
event_token GotFocus(TypedEventHandler<WebViewControl, IInspectable const&> const& handler) const;

// Revoke with event_token
void GotFocus(event_token const* cookie) const;

// Revoke with event_revoker
WebViewControl::GotFocus_revoker GotFocus(auto_revoke_t, TypedEventHandler<WebViewControl, IInspectable const&> const& handler) const;
public event TypedEventHandler<WebViewControl,object> GotFocus;
function onGotFocus(eventArgs) { /* Your code */ }
webViewControl.addEventListener("gotfocus", onGotFocus);
webViewControl.removeEventListener("gotfocus", onGotFocus);
- or -
webViewControl.ongotfocus = onGotFocus;

The following C# sample demonstrates an event using GotFocus and LostFocus with the WebViewControl:

WebViewControl webViewControl; 

void WebViewControlGotFocus(WebViewControl sender, IInspectable args) 

void WebViewControlLostFocus(WebViewControl sender, IInspectable args) 

webViewControl.GotFocus += WebViewControlGotFocus; 
webViewControl.LostFocus += WebViewControlLostFocus

The GotFocus and LostFocus event tell the app when WebViewControl receives or loses focus. This could be due to a call to MoveFocus, or due to the user clicking inside/outside the WebViewControl.
