Hello,

Is it possible to close a ToolWindow with the Escape Key?

I have been able to achieve this if another control has focus inside the ToolWindow, but if no control is in focus then the KeyDown event is never fired.

Help appreciated,

Regards
James.

Hello James,

 
KeyDown event fires when the sender has the focus. If it is not selected, it won't fire.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you require any further information.

Ok thanks for that.

Are you saying it is not possible to close a ToolWindow with the Escape Key?

If it is possible, can you please provide code to achieve this.

Regards,

James.

Hello James,

No, it is not impossible. Here is the code to accomplish this:  

public partial class MainPage : UserControl
   {
       RadWindow window;
       public MainPage()
       {
           InitializeComponent();
           this.KeyDown += new KeyEventHandler(UserControl_KeyDown);
           this.window = new RadWindow();
           this.window.Content = new TextBlock { Text = "Press esc to close the window" };
           this.window.Show();
       }
 
       private void UserControl_KeyDown(object sender, KeyEventArgs e)
       {
           if (e.Key == Key.Escape)
           {
               this.window.Close();
           }
       }
   }

You could handle KeyDown event for the MainPage - just make sure the focus in on the MainPage UserControl.

I hope this helps! 

Best wishes,
George
