Breadcrumb Control does not work inside DataGrid Row Details

Navigation for WPF Forum

I just began using the breadcrumb control and like it a lot. However, if I use the control in the RowDetails of a DataGrid, the menu will not stay open (not the combobox, the menu at the end of each crumb). I realize that I don't have the latest release, but I'm hoping that someone can verify that this bug has been fixed before we upgrade.

Hi Luke,

Sorry, we haven't had any reports on this issue before, so it's unlikely to have changed recently. If you can put together a small sample project that reproduces the issue and email it over to our support address, then we can take a closer look.

Just to follow-up on this thread for other readers, this turned out to be a bug with the DataGrid itself. The DataGridDetailsPresenter handles all LButtonDown events (apparently even if they've already been handled) and setts focus to the first cell in the row, thus stealing focus from the dropdown that's trying to open. So this is Microsoft's fault, not Actipro.

General note to readers: The Microsoft DataGrid seems to have multiple issues with RowDetails (in addition to this one), so if you're contemplating using it, just be aware :)
The latest build of this product (v24.1.2) was released 27 days ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
