Kind regards and still waiting for a good and quick answer.
Any updates on keyboard navigation for this control?
running version 12.2.570

Yes, for the next maintenance release we've updated EnumPart to support ISpinnable, meaning arrow keys can be used to change values even if the drop-down is closed. We also made a couple other minor related tweaks.
I've installed the latest version(12.2.571) and the arrow keys now works for selecting a single value. I do however have another control that have an enum with flags bound to it that doesn't behave the way i want it to.
My question is if there is any way to select multiple values only using only the arrow keys? I know I can select multiple values by typing them in the text box and if i click inside the drop down it's possible to navigate between the values and select them with the space key.
So basically what i want is to be able to move the keyboard focus to the dropdown list when it is opened or by pressing a key or a key combination. Is there any property or flag i can set to achive this behavior ?
Sorry but no, there isn't currently a way to get focus into the drop-down by keyboard alone. You could possibly override OnKeyDown in the EnumEditBox and call the base method. If you detect the Alt+Down arrow press, then try and get a reference to the Popup (it's a protected-level property) and focus its content.
