How do I set shortcut keyboard controls to directly access any control (viz. textBox) placed on the ribbon?

I tried setting keyTips to all controls. It is happening. But the problem is after a particular control is getting selected, I have to re-use my mouse and click on the ribbon to make Alt and Cntrl+Key combination to work.
Is there anything I am missing?

When you start using the keyboard to navigate over the controls, key tips become hidden. After that the keyboard navigation is only available. If the focus is set to a text box control, you can press Esc key to bring the ribbon control back to focus.

The KeyTips should work exactly like in Office 2007 Ribbon applications. We have an article with this regard: Did you happen to read this article?

Yes I read this article and did the same way. It is happening also but there is one problem I am facing.

After using KeyTips for tabs and controls inside them, I am able to navigate to a specific control. But when I enter a textBox using keyboard , the focus is set to the textBox and to make these keyTips to work again, I have to bring the Ribbon back in focus by clicking on it.

Is there a work around? I don’t want to click on the Ribbon every time to bring it to focus.
