Arrow Key should not focus on the hidden properties of Property Grid.

Grids for WPF Forum

We are using actipro's property grid to list the properties. (i.e.Type: ActiproSoftware.Windows.Controls.Grids.PropertyGrid Assembly: ActiproSoftware.Grids.Wpf, Version=17.2.660.0) There are some cases where we need to hide and display the properties depending on the selection. And to achive this we are doing style binding to PropertyGridItem to hide the PropertyGridItem based on the modals IsVisible property.

Now what's happeing is if we use keyborad down arrow key to navigate to the next property it works fine when the property is not hidden,
but if any property is hidden and then when we do down arrow key it's focusing on the hidden propety which is not visible.Ideally when we press down arrow key it should focus and move to the next visible property instead of hidden property.

For user, this behaviour looks like the focus is lost and he will not be able to navigate to next visible property.

Can you please try this with the latest 2018.1 version build and let us know if you still see it happening there?  It sounds like something we may have addressed in the past.  Thanks!
