Bug on checkable BarButtonCommand

Docking/MDI for Windows Forms Forum

Environment: Windows XP (32-bit)
When you click on a checkable BarButton located on a second level menu branch, the window goes to bottom level.

It seems to me that this was not happening in previous releases.

You can see this in your BarForm project: if you click on Window->MdiStyles->Tabbed, you see a window flickering: Window goes to bottom level, then the action on the barManager_CommandClick bring it back to front: if you do no action, window stay on back.

If you want to exactly duplicate the bug, follow these steps on BarForm.cs:
- create a BarPopupBotton with fullname = "Test.Test" and with checkable options enabled
- add the button to Window->Mdi Style
- add these lines to barManager_CommandClick event:

            if (e.Command.Category == "Test") 
When you click on the Test Button, the window with the menu goes at bottom level and "ActiPro Launcher" appears.

Thanks for the repro steps. We've done a lot of tweaking of how focus works for menus in the upcoming release and the changes appear to have resolved this issue.
