Thank you for writing back.
Yes, this property value is hard-coded to false
. The case here is that our editors (RadDropDownList
) internally host the standard MS TextBox control. So, in order to allow the inner text box control to get the focus, we have hardcoded the control TabStop
property to false
, so the inner control will accept the focus (and you will be able to type in after pressing tab). At the same time, the DefaultValue
attribute of the TabStop
property is true
, so when we hard coded it to false
, once you opened a form designer containing these controls, their TabStop
property will get serialized to false
and you will not be able to change that. However, in general, you shouldn't need to change that by default, as the focus will be given to the inner control as it should. If you want to disable the TabStop
you can set it to false
in code (this will set the TabStop
of the internal textbox):
I hope this information helps.
