Using even the published demo code at demos.telerik.com, I cannot shift-tab out of a toolbar control.  This can be reproduced at http://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/toolbar/index:  get the focus inside the toolbar and press tab to go forward through the buttons, eventually exiting the toolbar and on to other items.  Again, put the focus in the toolbar and use shift-tab to move backwards through the elements.  The focus reaches the first button and stops - it won't shift-tab out.  

In my product's code, I experience almost the same, except the shift-tabbing seems to stop at the second button in the toolbar, not the first as seen in the demo.

Hello Rich,

Are there any elements that can be focused placed before the ToolBar in your scenario? Here's the demo you linked opened in dojo with 2 input elements added before the ToolBar. With their presence Shift + Tab correctly focuses the input that precedes the ToolBar.

Thanks Ivan!  I observe the expected tabbing with your example.  I compared it to mine, and I have elements that are outside of the DIVs containing the toolbar.  If you put those first two input buttons in a separate div that doesn't (eventually) contain the toolbar, you'll see the issue.  Here's a small edit of your snippet, in other words, change:

 

<div id="example">
           <div class="demo-section k-content wide">
             <input type="text" id="input1"  />
             <input type="text" id="input2"  />
               <div id="toolbar"></div>
           </div>
           <script>....

to this:

<div id="outer div">
     <input type="text" id="input1"  />
     <input type="text" id="input2"  />
 </div>
 <div id="example">
    <div class="demo-section k-content wide">
       <div id="toolbar"></div>
    </div>
    <script>...

Hi Ivan,

In addition to this issue (which seems to depend on whether the elements to shift-tab out to are in a containing div), I've found what I think is another problem.

If resizable is set to false, then the focus using shift-tab always *stops* at the second toolbar button.  This is seen on the Telerik-supplied demo here at dojo:   in the "Non-resizable Toolbar" toolbar, tab to "Button 4", then attempt to shift-tab to "Button 1".  The focus stops at "Button 2" and won't go any further back.
