public override 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 focused. Note that the View returned by this property doesn’t necessarily have input focus. The reason is that the grid control may be unfocused at present. In this case, the GridControl.FocusedView property indicates which View will obtain input focus when focusing the grid. To determine whether a View actually has input focus at present, use the IsFocusedView property.

Tip: the IsFocusedView property can be used when custom painting a View. You can paint View elements differently depending on whether your View has input focus.


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 Views that display real data within the Grid Control. Use the following methods to access these Views with which an end user interacts at runtime.
