    Hello again,


        I want to suggest a better behavior for this control that would help it stay 508 compliant.  When I use the RadTabControl in my applications, and a user attempts to change the tab using just the keyboard, this control behaves in a way that is not typical.   For starters, the RadTabItem’s default IsTabStop value is “false”.  Second, even when we set the IsTabStop to “true”, the focus is automatically changed from the Tabs to the first control in the tab being activated.  This is not a typical behavior as seen in the stock TabControl that Microsoft wrote (or any other Tab control to speak of).  Finally there is the matter of the AutomationPeer (as in there is none for either the RadTabControl or RadTabItem).  This presents an issue for customers like me who are required to make our products accessible.

    Hi Rashad Rivera,

     Huge thank you for the feedback. We are running a campaign to comply all our controls with full Automation support, because currently we lack some of them. I will make sure that the Automation for the RadTabControl will be available for this Friday with the Latest Internal build (hope this is ok for you, otherwise it will be ok in the official Q3 release coming in less than a month).
    Also we will make sure that the IsTabStop will be is working properly.
    Thank you for your collaboration.

    Sincerely yours,
