ComboBox behavior

Ribbon for WPF Forum

We have a few instances of the Actipro ComboBox in our Ribbon. We've used the control so that we can assign the KeyTipAccessText property. I've noticed that keyboard navigation with these comboboxes is different than the standard ones when running against .Net 4.0. With the standard comboboxes, when you tab into them, the current entry gets focus and you can use the arrow keys to walk through the available entries.

With the Actipro combobox (IsEditable = false), arrowing to a new value seems to make the focus move. You can see this in your Document Editor demo by removing the Command from the ComboBox labelled "Non-Editable:" (line 917). The first time you arrow down focus is moved out of the control.

Is there a way around this? Your FontFamily & FontSize comboboxes don't behave this way.

Thanks in advance!

It seems to be an issue when IsEditable = false. We updated our code to handle this better, and the updated code should be in the build that just came out a few minutes ago.

Just tried it out - looks great. Thanks for such a quick turnaround!
The latest build of this product (v24.1.2) was released 2 months ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
