BusyIndicator Focus issue

Oct 1, 2010 at 10:03 PM

Hey, first of all, the BusyIndicator is great, and I am using it very successfully in my project.  I thought I'd tip you off about one minor problem without though, luckily it is easy to fix.

I put my UserControl inside a BusyIndicator and everything worked fine except that I noticed when I used the keyboard to tab out of the last control in my UserControl that the whole Window appeared to have focus.  After using Snoop I was able to determine that it the focus was in the Visual Tree of the BusyIndicator itself.  I tried setting IsTabStop=False and Focusable=False on the BusyIndicator itself but that didn't fix it.

I fixed it by changing the BusyIndicator's ControlTemplate, specifically I added IsTabStop=False and Focusable=False on the ContentControl that is named "content".  Then my app's keyboard navigation was back to normal.

Just a heads up, thanks again for all your work.

Thanks for the tip.  I will put the fix in for the next release.
