If I put a grid in the telerik tabitem control and this grid has a bunch of textboxes, labels, dropdowns (like a form) when I hit the tab key to navigate through the form fields as I enter values, the cursor doesn't change position.

This behaviour works on the standard WPF tabcontrol.

Hi Matt,

The problem comes from the default values of the TabNavigation properties, below is a style that will fix this:

<Style TargetType="telerik:RadTabControl">  
    <Setter Property="IsTabStop" 
            Value="False" /> 
    <Setter Property="KeyboardNavigation.TabNavigation" 
            Value="Continue" /> 
    <Setter Property="ItemsPanel">  
        <Setter.Value> 
            <ItemsPanelTemplate> 
                <primitive:TabStripPanel x:Name="TabStripPanel" 
                                         KeyboardNavigation.TabNavigation="Once" 
                                         KeyboardNavigation.DirectionalNavigation="Local" /> 
            </ItemsPanelTemplate> 
        </Setter.Value> 
    </Setter> 
</Style> 
 

I have also attached a project where the fix is implemented.

You will be able to remove this style with the next release of the WPF controls.

Your points have been updated as per our EAP Program.
