    IsTabStop="False" is not working for the AutoCompleteBox.
    I was not going to use this control because of this problem.

    I found a solution by googling elsewhere and will post it here.
    Instead of using IsTabStop="False" use: KeyboardNavigation.TabNavigation="None"

    When RadComboBox has IsEditable="True" then, like AutoCompleteBox, IsTabStop="False" does not work.
    This solution will also apply to the RadComboBox problem.

    I have my working AutoCompleteBox set up as below.​ I have bolded the code that will make tabbing skip the control.

    <telerik:RadAutoCompleteBox Grid.Column="1" Grid.Row="0" 
       WatermarkContent="Type a bylaw"    
       ItemsSource="{Binding Bylaws}"
       DropDownItemTemplate="{StaticResource BylawSearchTemplate}"
       SelectedItem="{Binding SelectedBylaw, Mode=TwoWay}"
       Style="{StaticResource EditRadAutoCompleteBox}"
       KeyboardNavigation.TabNavigation="None" />
