    We use the Desktop Alerts quite extensive now, but something annoys me:
    When RadDesktopAlerts became visible while i am editing in a RadTextBox it seems to steal the focus. I can still type letters but delete and return keys are disabled. When the RadDesktopAlert disappears (we use the autoclose property) the keyboard works again and i can continue with the TextBox. Is there something you can do to fix this in the next version? Or is there already a setting to keep the Alert in the background?

    You can see the problem in your samples: Desktop Alert->Settings
    Preview the Alert and edit in the "Delay" text box. You can add numbers but delete and return keys are redirected to the desktop alerts.

    Best regards

    Hello Bernd,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    Indeed, RadDesktopAlert stays focused and when Enter or Backspace keys are pressed, this causes the alert to close. However, there is no work around available for this and since we are very close to Q1 2011, I can not provide you with a specific time frame in which we will address the issue.

    I have added this into out PITS system where you can subscribe for its status updates and also add your vote for it in order to increase its priority.

    Thank you for this report. Your Telerik points have been updated.

    Best wishes,
