Set Focus to a Control

From NSIS Wiki

Author: deguix (talk, contrib)


Description

Deprecated by: NSIS 2.24 - FOCUS InstallOptions flag.

Required: InstallOptions plug-in based resource file and System plug-in.

This function sets focus to a control using information from an InstallOptions plug-in based resource file.

Normally, InstallOptions used to set the focus to the first focusable control found in the INI file. This allows specifying another control without messing with the controls' order.

Function Call

Push "Page.ini" ;Page .ini file where the field can be found.
Push "Handle" ;Page handle you got when reserving the page.
Push "Number" ;Field number to set focus.
Call SetFocus
