TabbedGroupedMDIManager/MDITabPanel & SwitchPagesForDialogKeys

Is there something wrong in the way I am disabling the keys for switching tab pages with the TabbedGroupedMDIManager?

I set the "SwitchPagesForDialogKeys" to false for my MDITabPanel. But I can still use "Ctrl+Tab" and "Shift+Ctrl+Tab" to switch the outer tab pages.

Our application has a fairly complicated tabbed structure, I have sort of re-created it here. Essentially the TabbedGroupedMDIManager houses the outer tabs, each of those tabs is a form that contains a secondary TabControlAdv.

The end result is that on the inner tab pages we want to use the "Ctrl+Tab" and "Shift+Ctrl+Tab" for a different purpose. Currently the "TabbedGroupedMDIManager" is consuming the key strokes, and there doesn''t seem to be anything I can do to handle those key commands in the textbox control on the sheet.

I have attached a sample that shows the issue. Basically when "Ctrl+Tab" is hit with focus in the textbox, it should put the text: "Ctrl+Tab" in there. Instead if simply changes the outer tab pages.

Please let me know if I am doing something wrong with how to get the keyboard commands to be handled by the textbox.

Thank you!!

I was wondering if there was an update on this issue? The link to the "Bug Report" above no longer works, and I can't seem to find it in the list of known issues (open or closed).
