Set which dialog gizmo or area has focus

Is there a way to set which gizmo or object has the focus?

For example if mouse messages are used to set the focus to a 'GeUserArea' then mouse wheel scrolling will be processed without the user having to click in the area first.

I tried passing the int id of the user area to GeDialog.Activate(), but it returns False, and doesn't seem to set the focus there.

That's okay, the mouse wheel scroll messages seem to do it, if you set it up right.
I got it working.

Thanks anyway NiklasR

I'm using GeDialog.Activate() to set focus to a user area too in a plugin I'm currently working on, and
it returns True for me and properly assigns the focus. :nerd:

Still no luck.

If I try to set the focus to anything on the dialog inside this function...

def InitValues(self) :

It doesn't work.

If I put it inside...

def Command(self, id, msg) :

and have a button press activate a text field for example, it does work.

But I want to set the focus away from a textfield that always has the focus when the dialog opens.
Having the focus there is messing up my keyboard shortcuts.  They go to the textfield and not to the dialog properly.

Are you setting the focus to a UserArea in an 'InitValues' function?
