BaseView.IsFocusedView Property

Gets a value indicating whether a View is currently focused.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraGrid.Views.Base

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraGrid.v18.2.dll


public virtual bool IsFocusedView { get; }

Property Value

Type Description

true if a View has input focus; otherwise, false.


You can use the GridControl.FocusedView property to determine which Grid View is currently focused. This property, however, denotes the grid control’s internal focus only. Said differently, a View can be focused within the grid and can have no input focus at the same time. This takes place when the grid control is not focused. Thus, you need to use the BaseView.IsFocusedView property of a View to determine whether it actually has input focus.

Tip: This property can be used when custom painting a View. For instance, you can draw View elements differently based on whether it has input focus. Refer to the Custom Painting Basics help topic for additional information on painting View elements manually.


Detail pattern Views do not contain data and they are never displayed within XtraGrid. So, the IsFocusedView member must not be invoked for these Views. The IsFocusedView member can only be used with real Views that are displayed within the Grid Control. The real Views with which an end-user interacts at runtime can be accessed using the following methods.
