    When the DropDownStyle is set to "DropDown" on the RadDropDownList, the control will not accept a <TAB> focus.  The issue appears to be caused by the hosted textbox having its TabStop set to False.  Is this a bug or by design?  

    This workaround appears to fix the issue.  Thoughts?
    RadDropDownList1.DropDownStyle = Telerik.WinControls.RadDropDownStyle.DropDown
    Dim oTextbox As HostedTextBoxBase
    oTextbox = Dropdownlist.DropDownListElement.EditableElement.TextBox.TextBoxItem.TextBoxControl
    oTextbox.TabStop = True

    Meanwhile, feel free to use the workaround you mentioned.
