When a ToolControl object gains focus, an ICompletionNotify object is passed to the ToolControl in the IToolControl::OnFocus method. The ToolControl needs to call the SetComplete method when it's finished to let the application know that the control should lose focus.

For example, a combobox control should lose focus after a user selects an item in the combobox. In this case in you would call SetComplete in the Click event of the combobox control.
