Hello,
I have problems with proper implemenation of tabindex with controls placed on panelbar.
On first panelbar only first textbox can be focused.
On second panelbar I need to press TAB twice - on first press focus goes somewhere (no idea where) and on second press it goes to next control.
Is this a problem of RadPanelBar or my improper implementation?
I'm using version no 2009.3.1505.1030

Here is my code:

<Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot">
        <Grid.RowDefinitions>
            <RowDefinition/>
            <RowDefinition/>
        </Grid.RowDefinitions>
        <telerikNavigation:RadPanelBar ExpandMode="Multiple" TabIndex="2" IsTabStop="False">
            <telerikNavigation:RadPanelBarItem Header="TEST1"  IsTabStop="True" IsExpanded="True" TabIndex="3">
                <Grid>
                    <Grid.RowDefinitions>
                        <RowDefinition/>
                        <RowDefinition/>
                        <RowDefinition/>
                    </Grid.RowDefinitions>
                    <TextBox  Grid.Row="0" TabIndex="4">
                    </TextBox>
                    <TextBox Grid.Row="1" TabIndex="5">
                    </TextBox>
                    <CheckBox Grid.Row="2" TabIndex="6">
                    </CheckBox>
                </Grid>
            </telerikNavigation:RadPanelBarItem>
            <telerikNavigation:RadPanelBarItem Header="TEST2" IsTabStop="True" IsExpanded="True" TabIndex="7">
                    <TextBox TabIndex="8">
                    </TextBox>
                    <TextBox TabIndex="9">
                    </TextBox>
                    <CheckBox TabIndex="10">
                    </CheckBox>
            </telerikNavigation:RadPanelBarItem>
        </telerikNavigation:RadPanelBar>

        <!-- regular grid - it works -->
        <Grid Grid.Row="1" >
            <Grid.RowDefinitions>
                <RowDefinition/>
                <RowDefinition/>
                <RowDefinition/>
            </Grid.RowDefinitions>
            <TextBox  Grid.Row="0" TabIndex="11">
            </TextBox>
            <TextBox Grid.Row="1" TabIndex="12">
            </TextBox>
            <CheckBox Grid.Row="2" TabIndex="13">
            </CheckBox>
        </Grid>

    </Grid>

Hello meteorrr,

In order to modify the control to work as you expect, we need to perform a major change in it - so that it is not an Hierarchical Items Control, but a Hierarchical content control. The reason why the tab index is not working as you expect is caused by the design of the control. That said we will probably delay the change and will do it after the official Q2 release.

Best wishes,

Hi Nisha,

We haven't started working on this functionality yet. We are having our Q2 release in a week/week and a half and after that we will determine when exactly during Q3 we will be working on the mentioned functionality. Meanwhile you can track public issue tracking system item associated with this functionality.

Hello Hrushikesh,

With the 2010 SP2 release (0924), RadPanelBar inherits from RadTreeView and its focus mechanism behaves properly for a hierarchical ItemsControl (RadPanelBar is a hierarchical ItemsControl and RadPanelBarItem is HeaderedItemsControl).
The focus behavior your are looking for belongs to a control which is more like a TabControl (inheriting from ItemsControl and its items being HeaderedContentControl).
We've decided that we will not be changing the focus behavior or RadPanelBar but instead introduce a new control called Accordion (see the Silverlight Toolkit Samples for more info).
During Q1 2011 we will be working on implementing an Accordion. This control will have a panel similar to the panel of RadPanelBar, but will not be hierarchical this providing you with the focus mechanism you want.

Sincerely yours,
Kiril Stanoev

Hi Heiko Görig ,

 The Accordion control is currently out of our development plans. We encourage you to use the Accordion from the Silverlight Toolkit.

All the best,
