which control had focus before toolbar button pressed

Hi. I was wondering what the best way would be to determine which grid (or any control type) on a windows form had the focus just prior to the user pressing a toolbar button. I''m trying to put a generic "Query Data" button on a toolbar, which will refresh the data of any data-bound control that has focus when the button was pressed. Thanks for your help. Ross.

Perhaps Form.ActiveControl is what you''re looking for? >Hi. > >I was wondering what the best way would be to determine which grid (or any control type) on a windows form had the focus just prior to the user pressing a toolbar button. > >I''m trying to put a generic "Query Data" button on a toolbar, which will refresh the data of any data-bound control that has focus when the button was pressed. > >Thanks for your help. > >Ross.

Thanks. Yeah that will do it. I thought that the toolbar button would get returned as the ActiveControl as soon as I pressed it, like a normal button control does. Lots to learn ... :)
