I'm running into some issues using the KeyTipService with the RadRibbonView.
The first issue is that if the ribbon is minimized, the key tips seem to display most of the time, without popping up the ribbon tab. (See attached picture). I say most of the time, since once in a while it will actually work (the ribbon tab will open), but then sometimes after it does work (the ribbon tab opens), it might not close afterwards! (e.g., if the user clicks the application title bar instead of choosing a key tip).
The second issue is that when the ribbon is NOT minimized, the key tips seem to work pretty well, except for an annoying focus rectangle that I cannot seem to get rid of when displaying a menu (see attachment). I have tried setting IsFocusable to false and the like, but still can't get it to stop showing. Any tips on how to get rid of that focus rectangle (using RadContextMenu and RadMenuItem).
Finally, when the key tips do display, they display very slowly. i.e., when using ALT, then picking a tab, the key tips on that tab take a long time to display. So much so that you can see them pop up, gradually, from left to right. At first I thought it was a deliberate animation, but seeing that Office and other applications show the key tips instantaneously, I am wondering whether it's just a performance issue, because if the key tip the user wants is to the far right hand side, then they have to wait a couple of seconds to see it.
As for these three issues, the one I am most concerned about is the flaky behavior with key tips when the ribbon is minimized, because it looks out of place and users will have a difficult time trying to navigate it. They shouldn't have to have the ribbon maximized in order to use key tips.
