In ribbon bar control when you have a combobox how do you fire clicked event to set focus to the combobox?

The intention is that as a user navigates the menu a category change will find first combobox on the category and click it so the user can start selecting immediately . The Combo box is mared as Editable

I have tried in the Category Changed event finding if there is a combo box then

Get Handle of the combo box and get the ComboxControl with


ribboncomboboxitem lrs_item

rbb_1.GetComboBox (al_combohandle, lrs_item )


also tried lrs_item.SelectItem(li_item)  where li_item = 1 to 5

Hi Kevin,


RibbonBar doesn’t provide such set focus functionality and there is no workaround for it at present as well.

I tested and verified the Ribbon Bar in the Mircosoft Word and found that it doesn’t have such kind of functionality as well.

Please report this requirement to our ticket system:https://www.appeon.com/standardsupport/newbug so that it can be properly received and tracked.
