Appbar takes over the focus


  • I am putting an iFrame in my app and have added several event listeners for keyboard events to the iFrame. 

    When I right click to bring up the appbar, it seems like the appbar takes away the focus so now all the keyboard events are not causing any actions in my app.

    Is this by design? Or is there a way to take the focus back to the iFrame?

  • The iframe can only take events that are within the iframe itself, not the parent.  When you click on the appbar (hosted in the parent) the iframe cannot get these events.
