I would like to disable Keyboard focus for the RichTextBox.
My RichTextBox is acting more like a viewer, with possibility to select text but not edit.
When I use snoop to check te keyboard focus on my application, I see Keyboard.FocusedElement = Caret
I'm experiencing difficulties disabling this focus.

When I execute UIElement.MoveFocus(new TraversalRequest(FocusNavigationDirection.Up)) I can't either move the focus

Hello Vincent,

The only way to disable keyboard focus is to disable all interactions with the editor by setting the property of RadRichTextBox IsEnabled="False". However, this will also disable selection.

Depending on your scenario, you can try using the IsReadOnly property of RadRichTextBox. When set to True, it will disable editing of RadRichTextBox, but you will be able to select text. You can also set IsFocusable="False" to prevent the rich text box from being focused on pressing the Tab key.
