Asked On October 2, 2019 11:49 AM UTC

I program a wpf app and use a community license. I use several SfMultiColumnDropDownControl contols in one window. I'm trying to focus on a combo box like that, but it does not work. For example: comboBox.Focus () does not work. Can you help me?

Hi Firat,   
Thanks for using Syncfusion products.   
We have checked the reported scenario about focusing the SfMultiColumnDropDown control and we are able to reproduce it in our end. You can move the focus to a specific SfMultiColumnDropDown control by moving the focus to its editor control as given in the below code example.   
Code example:    
var textBox = this.comboBox1.GetType().GetProperty("Editor", System.Reflection.BindingFlags.NonPublic | System.Reflection.BindingFlags.Instance).GetValue(this.comboBox1);   
if (textBox != null && textBox is TextBox)   
    (textBox as TextBox).Focus();   
We have prepared a sample using the above code example and it is available in the below link for your reference.   
Please let us know if your need further other assistance from us.
