    How Do I Set Focus To A Field

    I am trying to use the View.SelectText method to set focus to a field on a View.  However, I keep getting an error:  "The specified values for the View.SelectText call are not valid."  Any ideas what I am doing wrong here?

     I have the following code:

    XPathNavigator newNode = MainDataSource.CreateNavigator().SelectSingleNode(



    if (newNode != null) {

          CurrentView.SelectText(newNode, "CTRL1424");

    The only thing I could think of would be if CTRL1424 wasn't in your current view - I'm sure you've checked that 100 times though. Oh, I guess you could also get that error if that control isn't bound to the field you are using for the XPathNavigator. I mean, your code looks just like the sample on the MSDN page for the method.
