BarItem shortcuts make focused controls do not work correctly

I have a problem with a BarItem''s shortcut set to a key that the focused control also understands (for example the DEL key, if the focused control is a TextBox).

If I do this, my focused controls in the same form do not accept the shortcut key anymore.

Of course, shortcuts should not avoid controls having the focus to work correctly. First the control having the focus should have a chance to handle the key and then the BarItem can do its work.

Can I somehow avoid this unwanted behaviour?

Hi Mario,

Please refer the KB article in the link below

How do I workaround the problem resulting from having Delete key as a shortcut to one of my BarItems or MenuItems ?

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Hi Mano,
I think, it would be much easier, if Shortcuts would have a property, that allows to decide, whether local events are handled before the shortcut action executes?

Then I would not need to distribute shortcut disable/enable code throughout my whole application.

If this fits with your strategy, it would be nice to see this feature in a future release.

Regards, Mario

Hi Mario,

We will consider it and will make it as a feature in future releases.
