Type: Feature Request
PopupManager: improve its API to provide handling of the keyboard input

Use case: when RadPopupEditor is opened, the focus is sent to the popup control which handles all the pressed keys. It would be added public API which provides the possibility to plug into this keyboard handling and customize the behavior.

For example, when the popup is opened, pressing Escape, closes the popup. This functionality comes from the RadPopupContainerForm.OnKeyDown which behavior can't be overridden.

Currently, only the listener can be removed for a certain popup:

    Private Sub RadPopupEditor_PopupOpened(sender As Object, e As EventArgs)       PopupManager.Default.RemovePopup(Me.RadPopupEditor1.PopupEditorElement.PopupContainerForm)
    End Sub


UPDATE: The API should allow handling the mouse input as well and the developer should control whether the message will be managed further.

Hello, Riziq,     

I am glad that you have found a suitable solution for your custom scenario. Thank you for sharing the code snippet with the community.

However, I can't guarantee that it would work properly in all cases with RadPopupEditor. Feel free to use it if it fits your requirements.

We will definitely consider it when addressing this feedback item in order to provide the best possible API for handling the keyboard in the RadPopupEditor's drop down.

Should you have further questions please let me know.
