Hi again,

I have cut copy and paste toolbar buttons on my toolbar - whenever I click one, the focus on the active control is lost so I can't send a clipboard command to the control. Any ideas on how to achieve this?

reagrds,

Avner

Hello Avner,

Have you tried to subscribe to the LostFocus event of the control? In the event handler you can set the focus back  by calling the Focus method.

Kind regards,

Thank you for your suggestion, but wiring up the lostfocus event doesn't sound like a good solution. For a start you would have to conditionally refocus the control only if the control that gets the focus is the toolbar. Its further complicated when you have user controls and an MDI application.

The way I got around the problem was by remembering the last active control in my main form and applying clipboard operations to that control.

I feel the correct solution is for the Telerik toolbar not steal the focus. Even the windows forms toolstrip has this capability.

regards,

Avner

Hello avner,

Thank you for contacting me.

I agree with you that the toolBar shouldn't be able to get the focus. We will investigate this issue and correct it. The solution that remembers the last active control is a good workaround with the current implementation.

Do not hesitate and write me back if you have more questions about RadToolStrip.

All the best,

Hi,

Is this still an issue with version 2009 Q2 SP1?
I am having the same problem after replacing an existing ToolStrip with RadToolStrip.

Thanks,

Mike

MikeB,

This issue appears to still exist in SP1. I think going with avner's workaround is probably the best idea for now.
