Where should i attach the event to make it work properly?

Now i attach it to a RadPane, but it only works aslong as some objeckt inside the RadPane is focused. If i have the "frame" of the RadPane focused, say after i reposition it, the KeyDown will not fire. 

I have tried to attach the event to almost every object above the RadPane in the hierarchy but no luck so far...

Pseudu:

Grid
  RadDocking
    RadSplitContainer
      RadPaneGroup   <-- Inside here we dynamically add RadPanes
    /RadSplitContainer
  /RadDocking
/Grid

On further investigation the problem seems to be OS related, since the problem only occures in Windows 8, not in Windows 7.

Hello Niklas,

Basically, the RadPane is only the tab which is visualized when you have more than one RadPane placed in a RadPaneGroup. The area where the objects are visible is ContentControl which is not placed in the RadPane. This is the reason the event to be fired only if you have an object defined in the RadPane as the event of the object is send up in the visual tree.

Testing the case in different OS (Windows 7 and Windows 8.1) on our side we receive the same results - the event is not triggered if there are not controls defined in the RadPane. 

We would like to have more details about the behavior you're trying to achieve. In most cases hooking to the event of the control defined in the RadPane is helping is to resolve the case.
