    I have a Grid with a few TextBoxe's, RadDatePicker's, and a Hyperlink inside of a RadRibbonGroup.  This is to give the user control over a start and end date of the data appearing on the page.  The problem I am having is that when the page is loaded, the focus is on the first RadDatePicker.  If the user tries to click on another Tab on the RadRibbonView, it appears that nothing is happening because the RadDatePicker is losing focus.  

    An even bigger problem is if they click on the BackStageTab while the RadDatePicker has focus.  In this case, the click is ignored until the user manually clicks out of the RadDatePicker to get rid of the focus.

    I have tried to set the tabstop to false as well as hide the controls until after the screen is done loading.  While that appears to help by allowing the user to click on the BackStageTab, as soon as they click on the contextual tab to get back, the RadDatePicker has focus again.

    Ideally when the user tries to navigate with the RadRibbonView, I would like that navigation to happen and not be hindered by the RadDatePicker or other controls on the bar.  Is there a good solution?

    Hi Randy,

    I tested the reported scenario and I was not able to reproduce the issues. The tabs and the backstage or opened correctly even if the RadDatePicker is focused. Can you please send me code snippets or a project with an isolated implementation that recreates the issue? Also, steps to reproduce will be helpful. This way I will be able to test this behavior locally and investigate what is causing it.

    As a side note, keep in mind that RadRibbonView and its components are design so that they don't get the focus when you interact with them.
