Focused Property (Flex Objects)

Applies to TestComplete 15.64, last modified on May 16, 2024
This property is not supported in web tests (including cross-platform web tests) that use XPath expressions and CSS selectors to locate web elements. This property can be only used in tests that locate web objects by using internal identification properties provided by TestComplete.


The Focused property specifies whether the given object has the input focus. To move the focus to an object, use the SetFocus method.



Read-Only Property Boolean
TestObj A variable, parameter or expression that specifies a reference to one of the objects listed in the Applies To section

Applies To

The property is applied to the following objects:

View Mode

To view this property in the Object Browser panel and in other panels and dialogs, activate the Advanced view mode.

Property Value

True if the object has the focus; otherwise, False.


The Focused property may be absent in some objects listed in the Applies To section and may be present in other objects. This depends on the implementation of the IAccessible.State property on a particular object.

Do not confuse the focused and selected states:

  • The focused object is the currently active object, which has the input focus.

  • A selected object is the one that is simply marked (for example, one of items selected in a list box). At that, a selected object may or may not be focused. To check if the object is selected, use the Checked property.
