Hello

In the RibbonView group at the Q3-2013 release history, there is a line saying that the possibility to keep the Backstage open when Escape key is pressed was added:
http://www.telerik.com/support/whats-new/wpf/release-history/q3-2013

But I didn't find any property to do so, and even when I looked for the RibbonView changes here: http://www.telerik.com/help/wpf/radribbonview-changes.html
I couldn't find any information about the Q3-2013 release.

What I am looking for is the possibility to not close the backstage when I hit Escape. The reason is that I have a listbox, and my listboxitems have a textbox allowing the user to change the item's name, and the only way possible for the user to cancel the operation is by pressing Escape.

Maybe I didn't find the correct property or missed something else.

Thanks

Hello MaurĂ­cio,

Indeed we added a possibility to keep the Backstage control opened when the Escape key is pressed. In Q3 2013 we exposed the HandleKey() protected method of the RadRibbonBackstage control. In order to achieve your requirement you can create a class that derives from the RadRibbonBackstage and override its HandleKey() method. The following code snippet demonstrates sample implementation that will keep the backstage open even when the Esc key is pressed:

public class MyBackstage : RadRibbonBackstage
{
    protected override void HandleKey(KeyEventArgs e)
    {
    }
}

<telerik:RadRibbonView>
    <telerik:RadRibbonView.Backstage>
        <local:MyBackstage />
    </telerik:RadRibbonView.Backstage>
</telerik:RadRibbonView>

I hope this helps.

Regards,
Martin
