An ExpandBar in SWT will expand/collapse with the space bar when it has focus, but in RAP this does not appear to be supported.
Is there an equivalent key press that will do it, or was it just forgotten?
For accessibility compliance there needs to be some way to achieve this... perhaps with my own key listener... but it seems that it ought to be part of the standard control?
Thanks, John

Hi.

It wasn't forgotten exactly, but I agree on the accessibility point. Why
don't you open an enhancement request on bugzilla, so when we do some
work on ExpandBar we will remember this issue?

Greetings,
Tim
