Thank you for writing. RadTreeView design does not allow navigating nodes using the Tab key, the only control which allows similar behavior is RadGridView (navigation over cells). Generally the Tab key is used only for moving between Control instances. I suggest you use the arrow keys for the keyboard navigation of RadTreeView or implement custom logic to navigate with the Tab key. Please write again if you have other questions.
