Setting Focus on User Interface Controls

You can set the focus on a specific User Interface Control Item using

setFocus <rollout_ui_item>

Example:

rollout testFocus "Test Focus"

(

edittext text1 "Test"

edittext text2 "Focus"

)

createDialog testFocus 200 100

setFocus testFocus.text2 --the second text field gets focus!

In 3ds Max 6 and higher,

SetFocus can be used to set focus on ActiveX controls, too.
