I have an input box and I want to check if the user has given it focus or not. What property do I compare against to check this? To check if the text changed I would do something similar to this below.
if propertyName == 'text':
But that doesn’t help me if I want to know whether the box is focused or not.
Thanks for any help.
I don’t know if there’s a property, but there are focusGained and focusLost event handlers. You can write scripts that execute when a specific event occurs. This could include writing a value to a custom property of the component.
There is not a property event for that, @zacht is right, use the
focusGained event handlers. Also, I find it handy to print the event.propertyName unfiltered which allows you to see what properties are changing and when they fire for debugging.
This will have to suffice. Thanks.
