    I’ve noticed when I enable D&D on a list box in my app, certain keyboard functions no longer work in the list box.  For instance, the up and down arrows do not change the selection, and pressing an alpha key does not move the selection down to the first item starting with that letter.  I also tested your List box demos.  Everywhere D&D is enabled, the keyboard functions I mentioned do not work.

    I see no reason why D&D should disable those keyboard functions.  Is this a known issue?  Is this issue scheduled to be fixed in a future release?

    Hello Keith,

    Setting the TabIndex property of the ListBox should focus the control properly when using the mouse (the border of ListBox will be a bolder line as demonstrated in the ListBox - Keyboard Support online demo).

    Once you have set the TabIndex property, the keyboard navigation should work as expected.
