Well I solved #2 by using the keydown event to simulate Tab when Enter is pressed
        void Enter_KeyDown(object sender, KeyEventArgs e) 
        { 
            if (e.Key == System.Windows.Input.Key.Enter) 
            { 
                e.Handled = true
                FocusNavigationDirection focusDirection = FocusNavigationDirection.Next; 
                TraversalRequest request = new TraversalRequest(focusDirection); 
                UIElement elementWithFocus = Keyboard.FocusedElement as UIElement; 
                // Change keyboard focus. 
                if (elementWithFocus != null
                    elementWithFocus.MoveFocus(request); 
            } 
        } 
 
This code was not my invention. I found it on the internet but forget where.

Hello TWT,

This feature (EditTrigger when user starts typing) is in our TODO list. I cannot commit with any specific date or release, when this feature is ready we will make it public via our latest internal build program, so stay tuned.

Indeed solution for the second problem is very nice and helpful.

Best wishes,

Hi TWT,

This feature is not available out of the box, since we faced some issues with Silverlight 3. We are doing our best to introduce this for the official SL 4 version (of course for WPF too). Meanwhile you can use the approach demonstrated in the attached example.

Kind regards,
