CheckBoxAdv doesn't show FocusRectanlge when Style is set to Metro eventhough the DrawFocusRectangle property is set to true.
If you set Style property to Default then everything works as expected.

Check zip in attachment.

Is this supposed to behave like described above?

Hi SysNop,

Thanks for contacting Syncfusion Support.

We have internally handled the DrawFocusRectangle property for Metro style in CheckBoxAdv for flat look and appearance. Hence this property has been disabled, for Metro style. If you would like to enable Focus rectangle appearance, we suggest to use the DrawFocusRectangle property after style has been initialized. Please make use of the below code example.

Code Example[C#]:

//Draw focus rectangle for CheckBoxAdv

this.checkBoxAdv1.DrawFocusRectangle = true;

We have prepared the sample for your reference and it can be downloaded from here.

Please refer the below screenshot for further reference.
