    Dear Sir,

    I’d like to implement the key control in RadOutlookBar. The OutlookTabItems should become focus, when I press Tab key. If I press key down from the focused OutlookTabItem, the ContentControl should become focus. The same key control is in the Accordian from Silverlight Toolkit 4.

    I saw the sources from Telerik, and I think the key control is not implemented. The OutlookTabItem has no Focus VisualState. I can’t override RadOutlookBar and OutlookTabItem, because the important functions are internal.

    Do you have any example, how to implement this?

    Best regards

    Hello Thomas,

    Unfortunately the OutlookBar doesn't support keyboard navigation at the moment. However, we have added a feature request in our PITS that you can vote for thus increasing its priority.

    In the meantime you can handle the RadOutlookBar.KeyDown event to implement key navigation logic. I attached a sample project to get you started. Please have a look at it and let us know if it helps and if we can further assist you.
