    When I have an item selected in a RadTreeView, pressing the Tab key seems to work appropriately (shift focus to next focusable element), but Shift-Tab doesn't appear to be working at all. Is this a known issue?

    Hi Martin,

    Thank you for bringing up this issue, it was not reported so far and we have now logged it as a bug. We will do our best to fix it as soon as possible. I am not sure if the fix will find its way in the coming Service Pack, but it will appear in the coming internal builds (after the SP).

    This seems to not be working on the latest version (Q1 2012). Is a fix still planned for this issue?

    Hi Eric,

    This is the link for  the reported issue: .
    As you could see the demand for this issue is low (votes are 0) and is currently not scheduled to be fixed.
    I would like to suggest you a simple workaround but first want to describe you the reason for the issue.

    Currently the TreeView has logic to pass the focus to the SelectedItem (if there is such, otherwise the first item will be focused) in case the TreeView itself gets the focus. When the focus is in the first TreeViewItem and you press Shift+Tab the focus is transferred to the TreeView itself. Then as described above the selected item is focused.

    So if you prevent the focus to go to the TreeView itself (set IsTabStop=false on the TreeView) then you will be able to navigate the focus out of the TreeView using Shift+Tab.
