I have a RadDropDownList on a form with a label and a button. I have AllowShowFocusCues = true.

When the form is first displayed, the visual cue is NOT displayed. If I tab to the button and back to the DropDownList, then I *do* get the visual cue.

I know that the dropdownlist does get the initial focus because I can use the arrow keys and F4. But when the form is first displayed, the user cannot see where the focus is.

Is this a bug that I should report? Or is there something else that I need to do to get visual cues the first time the form is displayed?

Thanks!

Hello Deborah,

Thank you for the writing.

The described behavior is actually a behavior of .NET Framework - you can try this with a MIcrosoft ComboBox. As far as we are aware, there is no elegant way to change this behavior.

If you have additional questions, feel free to contact me.

Kind regards,

Hi,

We have this same problem. The control does not have a focus cue unless you tab into it from another control. If you click it or set focus in code no focus cue shows up. Once it gets the focus cue the first time, then it works fine after that.

This has become an issue for us. Is there any way to get this to work?

Hi Kim,

Thank you for writing.

As we mention before this is a default behavior of the WinForms .NET Framework and we cannot managed it, hence we cannot propose workaround for it.

If you have any other questions, do not hesitate to ask.

Regards,
Peter
