Post subject:  Can a popupmenu be the first control to receive focus?

This is the first time that I've had the need to have a popupmenu be the first control on a window since I started using RS and it seems that running on Mac the popupmenu can't receive focus as the first control in the window, it works OK under windows XP, 7 & 8 though.

Is this normal behavior or am I doing something wrong?

The default on Mac OS X is that you can only set focus (or Tab to) Textfields.
If you want the user to be able to set focus on your PopupMenu they have to go into their System settings > Keyboard > Keyboard Shortcuts and enable "Full Keyboard Access" to All Controls.

Mac OS X doesn't behave like Windows do ;)

I guess I need to understand OS X a bit better.

Thanks for the info!

I don't know if this is true to ALL os x versions but at least from 10.5 what I can find out :)
