    Hi,

    If I use <Tab> to navigat to my controls, DatePicker behaves well: it selects the entered date allowing the user to start typing. If I enter the DatePicker with <Shift>+<Tab>, it draws an orange border but neither does it select the text nor does it even show me a caret in the textbox. Typing in this situation does not show any effect.

    Another question I am facing is, how can I give the first datepicker on a user control the focus after the control is loaded so that the user can immediately start typing into this datepicker?

    We are using 2010.2.924.1040 of Telerik.Windows.Controls.Input.

    Any help will be appriciated.

    Thank you,

    Tobias.

    Hi again,

    I build a small testing application to test the behaviour and to see what gets the focus on tabbing.

    If I tab forward, I get the following output:

     

    LostFocus: Telerik.Windows.Controls.RadWatermarkTextBox  Sender:PART_DateTimeInput Telerik.Windows.Controls.RadWatermarkTextBox
    GotFocus: Telerik.Windows.Controls.RadWatermarkTextBox  Sender:PART_DateTimeInput Telerik.Windows.Controls.RadWatermarkTextBox

    On the first shift-tab I get:

    LostFocus: Telerik.Windows.Controls.Primitives.Popup  Sender:PART_DateTimeInput Telerik.Windows.Controls.RadWatermarkTextBox
    GotFocus: Telerik.Windows.Controls.Primitives.Popup  Sender: Telerik.Windows.Controls.Primitives.Popup

    Then all subsequent back tabs give

    LostFocus: Telerik.Windows.Controls.Primitives.Popup  Sender: Telerik.Windows.Controls.Primitives.Popup
    GotFocus: Telerik.Windows.Controls.Primitives.Popup  Sender: Telerik.Windows.Controls.Primitives.Popup

    A forward tab then yields to

    LostFocus: Telerik.Windows.Controls.RadWatermarkTextBox  Sender: Telerik.Windows.Controls.Primitives.Popup
    GotFocus: Telerik.Windows.Controls.RadWatermarkTextBox  Sender:PART_DateTimeInput Telerik.Windows.Controls.RadWatermarkTextBox

    I hope this helps you to figure it out...

    Greetings,

    Tobias.

    Hello Tobias Richling,

    Thank you for the detailed report. We are aware of this problem, the focus was going to the Popup of the control. It was fixed in our last release Q3. You can download it from the download section of your account.

    Sorry for the inconvenience caused, let me know if you have further questions.

    Best wishes,
    Boyan

    Hello Telerik Team,

    We use Q1.2012 and the broken reverse Tab (Shift + Tab) still exists.
    You may test it on your online Demo (http://demos.telerik.com/silverlight/#DateTimePicker/FirstLook) - the error still exists.

    Can you tell me when this will be fixed?
    Thank you.

    Hi,

    This was fixed in previous releases, you can check Q3 2011, however it seems that we have introduced the bug again. In Q1 2012 we changed the implementation of the Popup used in the template of the control and it seems that this change has introduced the problem.

    I have logged it in our PITS where you can follow the item's progress.

    Please, excuse us for the inconvenience. We have added points to your account for the report. Don't hesitate to contact us if you have other questions.
