DateTimePicker and presing the Enter key

We're currently using your DateTimePicker inside of several of our dialogs. We're encountering a problem when the DateTimePicker has focus and the user presses the Enter key: In a dialog, we'd like to commit the dialog, but the DateTimePicker is setting that KeyDown event arg e.Handled = true. This is preventing the dialog from committing. If the Popup is not open, is there a reason that the Enter key press should be handled? Could you suggest a possible workaround for this issue, or is there something you can do on your end to ensure that the window will eventually receive the Keydown event? Thanks.

Hi Martin,

Right now Enter should only be getting handled if the dropdown is open, which commits the selection. If the dropdown is not open, I don't believe our code handles it.

Thank you for the quick response! I am currently using version 4.5.0486 of the WPF controls. Has this been fixed in 4.5.0487? Thanks.

I don't believe the code has changed in that area in a while. If you want to email over a simple sample project that shows it happening we can try it in the latest code to ensure it's working correctly.
