Detailed Description

The Focus action uses the same logic as the Select action. But unlike the Select action, this will not make a checkbox selection next to the tree entry; this will only place the focus (highlight) on the specified tree entry.

For example, <Focus Target="Tree" Category="Designs" Type="Folders" Name="($Trash)"/> would set the focus (highlight) the Folder ($Trash) as seen below.

Focus can be set at the Category level, the Type level, or the Name level.

Example Script

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<ytriaAutomation Application="scanEZ" ApplicationVersion="16.5">
<Load Server="ACME01/ACME">
<Load Database="mail\daltmann.nsf" Select="True"/>
<Expand Target="Tree" Category="Designs" Type="Folders"/>
<Focus Target="Tree" Category="Designs" Type="Folders" Name="($Inbox) [en]"/>
<Select Target="ItemsGrid" lines="all"/>

In the script above, the database "daltmann.nsf" on ACME01/ACME will be loaded into scanEZ. The selection tree will be expanded to allow the action Focus to place the focus (highlight) on the folder named "($Inbox) [en]". All entries within the Items grid will be selected.
