I have a dockable window with a single listview control on it. Selecting an item in the view will build a layer and add it to the map. At the point of the layer being added to the map, I need to set focus to the map. However, focus remains on the listview.

My issue is exactly the same as the following thread: How to set focus on ArcMap map window using arcobjects and c#.net. I have followed the suggested answer in that thread of using an IntPtr, but it doesn't set focus to the map.

The following is the line of code that I am using in a public method after the layer has been added to the TOC and map:


As an fyi, I have also declared the following at the top of the class:

// Sets the keyboard focus to the specified window.
[DllImport("user32.dll", SetLastError = true, CharSet = CharSet.Auto, ExactSpelling = true)]
public static extern IntPtr SetFocus(IntPtr hWnd);
