    I am using windows8touch theme in windows 8 desktop.

    If the user touches the filter button the filter drop down opens.

    If they touch the keyboard button on the task bar (brings virtual keyboard up) the drop down closes.

    They then need to press the filter button again to open drop down.

    Any way to correct this behavior.


    any assistance would be appreciated

    Hello David ,

    Indeed, this would be an expected behaviour. Generally, in WPF the filtering popup (which is plain PopUp) is listening for the mouse click event and it is closed when the user clicks outside of it. The touch down action propagates to MouseDown and this is why you can reproduce the same behaviour using touch gesture. Unfortunately, there is no easy workaround for this behavior. What I can suggest you is to implement a logic which will open the virtual keyboard when you press the filtering funnel. You may find this article helpful. If you need further assistance on this, do not hesitate to contact me again.
