I'm trying to use the Tab key to navigate between items in an OutlookBar. I've noticed that Ctrl-Tab works, but Tab by itself doesn't. The Silverlight version of the OutlookBar does navigate between controls using only the Tab key.
Is there something that I'm missing to get this working the same way on both WPF and Silverlight, with just the Tab key?

Here's some XAML that's similar to the layout that I'm trying to create:
    <Grid>
        <Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
            <ColumnDefinition />
            <ColumnDefinition Width="2*" />
        </Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
        <telerik:RadOutlookBar>
            <telerik:RadOutlookBarItem>
                <StackPanel>
                    <TextBox>Try to</TextBox>
                    <TextBox>tab</TextBox>
                    <TextBox>between</TextBox>
                    <TextBox>us</TextBox>
                </StackPanel>
            </telerik:RadOutlookBarItem>
        </telerik:RadOutlookBar>
        <StackPanel Grid.Column="2">
            <TextBox></TextBox>
            <TextBox></TextBox>
            <TextBox></TextBox>
            <TextBox></TextBox>
        </StackPanel>
    </Grid>

Hi Scott Olson,

Examining the code you provided both in WPF and Silverlight, I noticed one and the same behavior. Pressing the Tab key multiple times navigates from the first TextBox in the RadOutLookBar to the TextBoxes in the StackPanel outside the OutlookBar and between them.
 However, in WPF,  if you need to navigate between the TextBoxes in the RadOutlookBar ,  you can do like so: 
<telerik:RadOutlookBar KeyboardNavigation.TabNavigation="Continue">
Note that the KeyboardNavigation class is not supported in Silverlight.

Hope this is what you had in mind and it has helped you. Please feel free to ask if you need further assistance.
