MFC CEdit loses focus

Hi.
I have MFC application and one of my views(derived from CFormView) has CHtmlView and some CEdit inside on it.
CHtmlView displays content of html file and I have a timer (CMyHtmlView::OnTimer), which refreshes this html view and displays new info. (CHtmlView::refresh function, see code attachment)

I have "introduced" shortcuts, so if user presses one of the shortcuts - relative CEdit will gain focus.  This is done in CMyView::PreTranslateMessage(see code attachment for example)

The problem is, that if I make left mouse click on CHtmlView, when I press F4(and CEdit will gain focus and selection),
then after the next time CHtmlView::refresh will be called, CEdit will loose focus.

If I select text in CEdit by mouse or I press F4 without mouse click on CHtmlView or even if I make mouse click on some other button/window/view/frame no matter what (and then I press F4) - after CHtmlView::refresh focus will still be on CEdit.


Any ideas, how to fix that?

P.S Sorry for my english :)

void CMyHtmlView::OnTimer(UINT nIDEvent)
{
	if(m_bUpdateNeeded)
	{
		m_bUpdateNeeded = FALSE;
		Refresh();// load new content from file
	}
	CHtmlView::OnTimer(nIDEvent);
}
//
BOOL CMyView::PreTranslateMessage(MSG* pMsg)
{
.....
switch((int)pMsg->wParam)
{
case VK_F4: 
        m_OneOfCEdit.SetFocus();
	m_OneOfCEdit.SetSel(0,10);
        return TRUE;
}
.....
}

Open in new window

can you show code of Refresh function?

you may try in OnTimer

   bool edit_has_focus = (GetFocus() == &m_OneOfCEdit);
   Refresh();// load new content from file

   if (edit_has_focus == true)
      m_OneOfCEdit.SetFocus();

CMyHtmlView::OnTimer
doesn't know anything about m_OneOfCEdit..

m_OneOfCEdit and CMyHtmlView are both defined ( and used ) in CMyView as UI elements...

ok, i found an inline implementation of CHtmlView::Refresh which calls m_pBrowserApp->Refresh where m_pBrowserApp is type  ::ATL::CComPtr<IWebBrowser2>

i think it is good chance that the Refresh would set the focus differently. did you try the code above?

then try:

   CWnd * pOneOfCEdit = ((CMyView*)GetParent())->GetDlgItem(IDC_ONEOFCEDIT);
   bool edit_has_focus = (GetFocus() == pOneOfCEdit );
   Refresh();// load new content from file

   if (edit_has_focus == true)
      pOneOfCEdit->SetFocus();

the code assumes that the control id of m_OneOfCEdit is IDC_ONEOFCEDIT and that CMyView is parent of CMyHtmlView.

Ok. Tnx, I try it a little bit later..
By the way, if I change code from using CHtmlView::refresh to CHtmlVieww::Navigate2(file_with_content)
focus won't dissapear.

if the Navigate2 is a working alternative you should use it. those special views like htmlview or listview were not made for use as controls and do more than needed.
