Emulators without Borders

Filed under: Aeon, WPF — Greg Divis @ 2:37 pm

One issue I’ve had with authoring a WPF UserControl/CustomControl has been the dashed focus rectangle that gets automatically drawn to indicate keyboard focus. I’m sure there are situations where this is useful, but Aeon’s emulator display control is not one of them.

Control Border

Getting rid of this is pretty easy. Just set the FocusVisualStyle property to null.

<ContentControl FocusVisualStyle=”{x:Null}” />

Of course, most custom controls should probably set it to a more appropriate style rather than null, but in Aeon’s case it doesn’t really make sense to show focus in this way. Somehow I’ve managed to overlook this property since I started this project, but as of version 0.50, that focus rectangle is finally gone!
