Yes, the same approach should work in FXRuby. In fact, you should in
theory be able to just override the canFocus? method on a particular
button instance without having to subclass FXButton, e.g.

    no_focus_button = FXButton.new(...)
    def no_focus_button.canFocus?; false; end

Hope this helps,
