Accessibility breaks with multiple menu instances


Clicking tab key causes two menus to open simultaneously. Bug occurs within the All Menus Together sample in the MultiMenu Samples folder. To reproduce, click the tab key to move between menu items when more than one menu resides on a page.

I suspect the starting tab index for each menu needs to be adjusted. I'll check it out, thanks.

If you adjust the TabStartIndex properties for each menu so that there is no overlap in tabindex across all menu items, this will prevent more than one menu from being activated at one time. Unfortunately, for some reason the last menu item of the first menu will not jump to the first menu option of the second menu. I'm not sure why and will have to look into this further. I have attached an updated mockup file for the "All Menus Together" sample.
