Dear Syncfusion,

We are using V

I have a screen with a panel, xpTaskBar inside panel. And three xpTaskBarBoxes. I have set focusOnclick = true for all boxes.

Now when I start click on first box, it shows dotted border to depict that it is selected. Fine. But when I press down arrow, focus seems in second box. But no dotted border appears.

And also, when i press space bar now, it will expand/collapse second box. Thus focus of click and tab are not the same.

This is confusing to the user. I want to change focus(with dotted border) using click/tab . And space bar should always only expand/collapse the focussed box.

How to set this?

Hi Rajani,

We were able to see the problem and we have logged a bug report #2747 for this.

Defect #2747 - XPTaskBarBox Header border is not visible when focus changes from one box to other.

As a workaround, you can set the FocusOnClick to false and set the colors of header in the Enter and Leave events to differentiate the focussed box. Note: This will work only if the ThemesEnabled property is not set. Please refer the attached sample.


Thanks for choosing Syncfusion products.

K.Saradha Devi.
