    I am using RadTextbox in one of my project to get consistent UI throughout application and I am really happy to achieve that using Telerik controls.

    But one thing I found in while testing my app that RadTextbox don't support Shift+Tab functionality. This is used to navigate backward using keyboard.

    Is there any property need to be enabled to achieve this?

    Also while using keyboard - when button get focus, it don't change it look.
    I believe it should look same as Mouse over state.

    My application has kind of data entry form and require keyboard navigation for fast input. I will really applicate if both textbox and button can behave as good as they work with mouse.

    Hello Bryan Andrews,

    In order to change the visual state of RadButton you may set the AllowShowFocusCues property to true to show the black dotted rectangle that indicates focus. Another option is to modify the theme and set colors for the FillPrimitive when the IsFocused property is true. Probably it will be good to check the "Auto un-apply" option.

    Here are some videos for using VisualStyleBuilder in order to make themes:

    Thank you for reporting the issue with Shift+Tab and RadTextBox. It will be addressed as soon as possible.
