    I'm implementing shortcut key for tabcontrol's tabitems. But when I focus to 1 tab that has first control is Radcombobox (isReadonly=True), I can't use shortcut key anymore. I debugged and found out KeyDown event not work with radcombobox that isreadonly=true. Anyway to work around?

    The earlier versions of RadComboBox used to handle the KeyDown event when they performed autocomplete. You could disable the autocomplete by setting IsTextSearchEnabled=false and this will prevent the control from handling the event.

    The newer versions (since version 2010.1.702) use the TextInput event instead of KeyDown and you should be able to handle the KeyDown event without disabling the autocomplete.
