I have a Radmenu that I use to switch between different views on my spreadsheet control.

My click event will call a method to flip the active sheet on my spreadsheet control and then set the focus to that control.

The odd thing is that if I physically click the menu item, the focus will move to my spreadsheet control and then immediately go back to the menu item. But if I use the keyboard and press "space" on the menu item, the focus will remain on the spreadsheet control (as expected).

I tested this with a sample app that has a radmenu with 2 items, and two buttons. Each menu item will set the focus to a button. Each button has a Enter and Leave event that updates the text of the button.  The behaviour I'm noticing is replicated in this project.

    public partial class Form1 : Form  
    {  
        public Form1()  
        {  
            InitializeComponent();  
        }  
 
        private void button1_Enter(object sender, EventArgs e)  
        {  
            button1.Text = "got focus";  
        }  
 
        private void button1_Leave(object sender, EventArgs e)  
        {  
            button1.Text = "lost focus";  
        }  
 
        private void radMenuItem1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)  
        {  
            button1.Focus();  
        }  
 
        private void radMenuItem2_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)  
        {  
            button2.Focus();  
        }  
 
        private void button2_Enter(object sender, EventArgs e)  
        {  
            button2.Text = "got focus";  
        }  
 
        private void button2_Leave(object sender, EventArgs e)  
        {  
            button2.Text = "lost focus";  
        }  
    }

Hi Loy Chan,

Thank you for contacting us.

This issue appears only when clicking on main menu items. Actually, the focusing of RadMenu can't be disabled. I would suggest moving your logic inside the MouseUp event of the desired menu item. Another approach would be to use RadToolStrip instead of RadMenu.

Should you have other questions I will be glad helping you.
 

Sincerely yours,
